Tipperary scored 1-9 without reply in the opening half as Laois went 21 minutes with out a score to lead by 2-10 to 1-3 at the break with both goals coming from Conor Sweeney for the visitors and John O'Loughlin raising a green flag for Laois.

Tomas O Flatharta's men looked down and out but summoned a huge comeback and by the 61st minute they were level as goals from James Finn, Conor Meredith and David Conway got them right back in it.

Tipp deserve huge credit for regaining their composure and Barry Grogan's goal with two minutes of normal time to go proved to be an insurance score and they ran out five-point winners.
