Tipperary’s Under 20s will be looking to give football in the county a boost as they line out in a Munster semi-final this evening.
The Premier county recorded an impressive 16 points to 1-10 win over Limerick in the opening round of the championship last week to earn their first victory at Under 20 & 21 level since the 2015 All Ireland semi-final.
Paddy Christie’s side go up against Waterford in the last four after the Deise saw off Clare in the quarter-finals.
Tipp FM football analyst Shane Stapleton says last Thursday night’s victory will have changed the mood in the Tipp camp.
“They just played good football – they played well, they hit lads, they fought for breaks, they were free to make mistakes.”
“It was a really good win and it was a nice evenings work for the lads and I think they’ll get a lot of confidence from it.”
“I know Waterford scored 3 or 4 goals the last time and got over a fancied Clare team so it will be an interesting one.”
