UK Twitterati love ‘crazy game’ of hurling for ‘real men’ in Tipperary v Galway clash
Sky Sports viewers in the UK again showed their astonishment, respect and confusion over the game of hurling during tonight’s qualifier between Tipperary and Galway.
Eamon O’Shea’s side emerged victorious in a high scoring encounter in Thurles, ending Galway’s participation in the 2014 championship on a scoreline of 3-25 to 4-13.
Spectators were treated to a high-quality affair, but for viewers in the UK, they are still finding their feet with the small-ball game.
Here is a flavour of the reaction.
Watching hurling on @SkySports 3, interesting viewing. I have no idea WTF is going on but looks like it could be a real vicious game— Phil Lloyd-Jackson (@plj2504) July 5, 2014
