WHAT have Cork's women got that their men still don't have? A handful of All-Ireland medals – yes. But they also have a sponsor.

Yes, JBM's boys may have spanked Tipp's hurlers last weekend, but they wore a charity logo on their jerseys for their league opener because the Rebel County still haven't nailed down a replacement sponsor for long-time supporters O2.
