Tipp not complacent, insists Nugent
Tuesday, June 11, 2013
Tipperary will return to training this evening after a clear-the-air meeting in a Limerick hotel following their exit from the Munster championship.
With a return to action in a July 6 qualifier, Eamon O’Shea is keen to get the loss to Limerick out of their systems as soon as possible.
County chairman Sean Nugent revealed they spoke extensively about the defeat at their post-match meal and dismissed suggestions the team were complacent going into the game.
Said Nugent: “Obviously there was disappointment over losing the game. We were favourites but I don’t think we were complacent about it whatsoever. We knew we would face a serious challenge.
“They had a talk – management and the team got together and they came out of that with a firm resolve to move on from that disappointment and pick up the pieces.
“We have a very united panel and they made the resolve to take on the challenge of the qualifiers.”
