Another couple of stunning Semple Stadium saves by Cork's Nash to add to his collection

The Cork netminder illustrated his worth today in Thurles.

CORK WERE PEGGED back by Tipperary for a draw in a thrilling Semple Stadium clash but they could be thankful to the intervention of their goalkeeper that they did not finish with nothing to show for their efforts in Thurles.

Anthony Nash showed his worth between the posts for Cork with a couple of incredible saves.

With Tipperary trailing 1-23 to 2-17 in the 67th minute, Nash produced this stunning stop to prevent substitute John O’Dwyer from whipping home Tipperary’s third goal.

And while the Kanturk man was beaten by Jason Forde and Noel McGrath in either half for Tipperary goals, he also denied Patrick Maher from close range with a great reflex save in the early stages of the match.

Cork’s draw means they are still unbeaten ahead of next Saturday’s tie at home to Limerick in Páirc Uí Chaoimh while Tipperary are still chasing their first win in the Munster campaign as they get set to take on Waterford next Sunday afternoon at the Gaelic Grounds.
