The toss – Cork win the toss and are playing in to the Town End and against the breeze in the first half.

Team News – both teams line out as selected.

Tipperary U-21 team to play Cork – Bill McCormack (Thurles Sarsfields); Donnagh Maher (Burgess), Padraic Maher (Thurles Sarsfields), Kevin Maher (Lorrha & Dorrha); Brendan Maher (Borris-Ileigh), Thomas Stapleton (Templederry Kenyons), Thomas McGrath (Ballingarry); Seamus Hennessy (Kilruane MacDonaghs), Gearóid Ryan (Templederry Kenyons), Michael Gleeson (Thurles Sarsfields), Seamus Callanan (Drom & Inch), Noel McGrath (Loughmore Castleiney); Pa Bourke (Thurles Sarsfields – Captain), Patrick Maher (Lorrha & Dorrha), Shane Bourke (JK Brackens)

Cork U-21 team to play Tipperary -Ciaran Cronin (Lisgoold); Killian Murphy (Erins Own), Jack Herlihy (Newtown), Conor O’Sullivan (Sarsfields); Aidan Walsh (Kanturk), Paudie O’Sulivan (Cloyne), Stephen White (Ballygarvan); Leigh Desmond (Youghal), William Egan (Kilbrin); Brian Corry (Ballymartle), Lorcan McLoughlin (Kanturk), Robert White (Carraigtwohill); Robert O’Driscoll (Sarsfields), Patrick Horgan (Glen Rovers – Captain), Andy Walsh (Killeagh)

7:15pm – both teams have taken the field and are in the process of warming up. No sign of the referee and officials yet.

6:50pm – Both teams teams have a lot of Senior experience in their ranks with Tipperary holding the favourites tag with 9 of last Sunday’s panel in the starting line-up tonight. However, going back 3 years ago there was little between the counties when at Minor level with Cork winning the Munster title before losing out to Tipperary in the All-Ireland. Players like Paudie O’Sullivan and team captain Patrick Horgan hold down central positions for Cork and will be in direct opposition to Seamus Callanan and Padraic Maher from 7:30pm onwards – two fascinating match-ups but there are similar line-ups all over the field. Cork are managed by John Considine fresh from his 2 match stint as the interirm Senior Hurling manager during the National League. Considine’s counterpart Declan Carr is in his second year having captured Munster honours last year, a title that is on the line here tonight. The referee tonight is Pat Casey of Waterford – there is a light breeze blowing towards the Killinan End in Semple Stadium with a warm sun keeping the patrons warm. The heat will die down surely as the game goes on but the use of fresh players as substitutes in the second half is sure to have a bearing. Check back in before the throw-in for the team news ahead of the throw-in.

6:30pm – Welcome to Semple Stadium on a glorious summer’s evening in Thurles for this mouth-watering clash of Tipperary and Cork in the Bord Gais Energy Munster GAA Under 21 Hurling Championship.
