Third time lucky? Tipperary and Kilkenny will return to Semple Stadium, Thurles, for a third time on Sunday week in an effort to play their weather-stricken NHL tie.

Twice cancelled at short notice on Saturday and Tuesday due to snow, both counties were anxious for it to be rescheduled as early as possible. They are in league action on Sunday and with the Fitzgibbon Cup final on Saturday week it was feared the game would be put back for several weeks.

However, it has been fixed for Sunday week (2.30) which means that both counties will play league games over five successive weekends between March 7 and April 4.
