Speaking to Tipp FM, manager Bill Mullaney is expecting a tough matchup with Waterford.

“It’s going to be a huge test – I mean we’re in an All Ireland quarter-final so you’d expect it at this level.”

“I expect Waterford to come at us with their forwards and they’ve a very good couple of backs as well. They have quality all over the field – they’re fit and they’re well put together.”

“They’ll come after us and we expect to have a huge battle with them on Saturday and hopefully come out the right side.”

Throw in tomorrow is at 2.45 in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
