Cork route one works a dream in Munster Hurling League final

Cork and Tipperary faced off in the pre-season competition decider


Cork capped a bright start to the Pat Ryan era, with a Munster Hurling League final win against Tipperary.

An early goal set the Rebels on their way, with route one paying dividends. Patrick Collins launched a huge ball from inside his own 20-metre line, which landed on the Tipperary 14.

Chaos ensued, before Patrick Horgan scooped the ball into the net.

The Premier County did hit back, with Sean Ryan finishing a beautiful goal after a neat one-two in the build-up.

But the Lee-siders won out, 3-14 to 1-19.
