Final Countdown

In video: Ryan ready for Cats challenge

Premier boss last night named his side to face Kilkenny this weekend. He knows what lies ahead.

TIPPERARY HURLING BOSS Declan Ryan last night named his side for Sunday’s All-Ireland SHC final with Kilkenny.

The Premier bainisteoir is expecting a similarly competitive display from his charges this week to that which stopped Kilkenny’s five-in-a-row 12 months ago.

The Premier boss has safely negotiated the county’s path back to an All-Ireland SHC final and acknowledges the biggest test of the season lies ahead.
