There is nothing in hurling quite like a sideline cut. It takes an incredible amount of skill, and it is a real thing of beauty when somebody can pull it off.
The debate continues to rage as to whether a sideline cut should actually be worth two points, such is the difficulty of the skill.
Tipperary put on an absolute masterclass as to how it should be done in the opening half of the Munster Championship match against Waterford this afternoon, providing two cracking efforts. Impressively, each also came from a different player.
Jason Forde was first up, producing this stunning long range effort from the near sideline.

They would be at it again only two minutes later, with Ronan Maher the scorer on this occasion. His effort was even further out than Forde's, and from the opposite side of the pitch as well.
A sideline cut by Ronan Maher shows just what scorers Tipp have at their disposal.

There must be something in the water down in Tipp. Hopefully we see plenty more incredible pieces of skill like this over the remainder of the summer.
