Not everything is black and white.

KERRY WRAPPED UP their 78th Munster SFC title on Sunday with a relatively comfortable 3-17 to 2-10 win over Tipperary at Fitzgerald Stadium.

Kingdom boss Eamonn Fitzmaurice made a very deliberate attempt to keep things compact at the back by putting 15 men behind the ball, but shipping 2-10 to a Tipperary side who failed to gain promotion from Division 3 will concern him.

The Munster champions now move into the All-Ireland quarter-finals with plenty of question marks over their defence, although by the end of Sunday’s game they may have stumbled onto a winning formula.

We’ve analysed Kerry’s defensive structure against Tipperary and where they can improve as the business end of the championship approaches.
