It is hard to take the positives when you’re on the wrong side of a 10-point beating, but Colm Bonnar has little option but to do that this week. Tipperary have just five weeks before the higher-stakes rematch in Walsh Park, a venue that’s fast becoming a fortress for Waterford under Liam Cahill.
It’s a dazzlingly beautiful morning in Dublin’s Docklands and Gerry Hussey exudes the serene optimism and inspirational patter of a newly anointed guru.
