The Tipperary camogie manager has praised his panel, following their 3 point defeat at the hands of Cork yesterday.
The Premier were missing a number of high profile players, including Mary Ryan, Karen Kennedy and captain Orla O’ Dwyer.
It resulted in a number of younger, less experienced players getting a chance to stake their claim for a starting spot.
Tipp face Galway next Saturday in the second round of the National Camogie League.
Bill Mullaney says the competition for places amongst the players is important.
