TRYING TO MAKE sense of Cork and Waterford’s thrilling draw in Thurles was difficult after a pulsating second-half of action.

Here’s where stats guru Ray Boyne comes in with his breakdown of the action and there’s some interesting nuggets of info.

  • Jimmy Barry-Murphy will want Cork to improve the return on their puckouts from yesterday’s tally of 44%.
  • Waterford’s tackling was far better, winning the count 47-33.
  • Pauric Mahony, Aidan Walsh and Alan Cadogan were the three most influential players in the game.
