TIPPERARY FACE MUNSTER rivals Cork in Semple Stadium on what promises to be an intriguing day of hurling this Sunday.

Their mouth-watering league semi-final will be preceded by the other final-four meeting of Clare and Kilkenny in Thurles.

Tipp and the Rebels will have a real sense of deja vú however, having met in the final round of NHL games — sharing the spoils in a thrilling shoot-out.

“That’s the way it worked out,” Premier forward Pa Bourke said at the a GAA event to promote the games at Holycross Abbey in Tipperary yesterday.

“You can’t do anything about that. It’s going to be another massive battle. The last day could have went either way and it finished in a draw. Next Sunday’s going to be no different.

“The first day out things didn’t go well against Kilkenny. Since then we’ve been improving though, we’ve had some great performances and we haven’t been beaten. We’re in a League semi-final next Sunday and it’s another opportunity to get to another final.”
