THE old adage that goals win matches certainly rang true at Cloughduv as Cork registered five to see off the challenge of Tipperary in a highly entertaining clash that marked the official opening of the local club's magnificent complex.

"We were rubbish in the first half and coach Jimmy Barry-Murphy let the players know that in no uncertain manner at half time", said Cork selector Sean McGrath.

"Thankfully the players responded in the second half and coupled with a few positions switches we got through for five excellent goals which was very encouraging. It's pleasing that we have bounced back from being relegated in the league recently, but we have a lot of work ahead of us to be ready for the championship."

"I'm not disappointing at losing the game. It was an excellent one to get in terms of preparation and we have another one next week against Waterford which should have us in good fettle for the Limerick championship game in a couple of weeks time," said Tipperary coach Eamon O'Shea.

The Premier County were full value for their 0-12 to 0-6 half-time lead but goals from Peter O'Brien, Michael Cussen (2), Pat Horgan and Stephen Moylan swung the tie in the Rebels' favour.

SCORERS – Cork: M Cussen 2-1, P Horgan 1-4 (1-0 pen, 4fs), P O'Brien 1-2, S Moylan 1-1, C Naughton 0-3, C McCarthy 0-2 (1f), R O'Shea 0-1. Tipperary: J O'Dwyer 0-7, J Forde, E Kelly (4fs) 0-4 each, N McGrath (1f), S Bourke 0-3 each, T Hammersley, B Maher, C O'Brien 0-1 each.

CORK – A Nash; S O'Neill, B Murphy, C Murphy; M Ellis, C Joyce, S McDonnell; R O'Shea, M Walsh; M Cussen, C McCarthy, C Naughton; S Moylan, P O'Brien, P Horgan. Subs: S White for Murphy (h-t), M O'Sullivan for Walsh (45), B Cooper for Horgan (48).
