Galway pipped Tipperary in the All-Ireland semi-final on Sunday, and Cummins feels that Tipperary suffered from not adding a new element to the game plan that delivered the Liam MacCarthy Cup last season.

He also defended The Sunday Game's coverage of the Adrian Tuohy face-guard incident.

In football, Dublin, Tyrone and Mayo all recorded easy wins, and Brogan feels that the semi-final battle between Jim Gavin and Mickey Harte has been building up for years.

Brogan explains how Gavin became 'obsessed' with breaking down blanket defences after losing to Donegal in 2014, and discusses whether Diarmuid Connolly should get back in the Dublin team to take on Tyrone.
