Hurling Power Rankings: Tipperary the biggest movers

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney visit the Our Game Hurling Power Rankings for the second time in the 2023 season

Tipperary hurling power rankings

With three rounds of action played in the Allianz Hurling League, Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney took stock of how the counties are shaping up for the summer.

Unsurprisingly, Limerick retain their top spot. The All-Ireland champions impressed with their wins over Clare and Galway, making up for their dramatic opening-day loss to Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

The nearest contenders in the chasing pack are also unchanged. Kilkenny, Galway and Clare lead the peloton.

Tipperary are the big winners, moving three spots up to fifth. The Premier County have made an impressive start to life under Liam Cahill, with wins over Laois, Kilkenny and Dublin. They are currently in pole position in Division 1B.

Despite winning three from three in Division 1A, Cork have dropped one spot. Wins over the Treaty, Tribesmen and Westmeath were not enough for Pat Ryan’s charges to hold their spot.

Waterford and Wexford also drop spots in the rankings, largely making way for Tipp’s ascent.

Dublin move above the Model County, in light of the Yellowbellies’ heavy defeat at the hands of the Banner last weekend. Micheál Donoghue’s charges drew away with Waterford, before accounting for Antrim at home.

Meanwhile, the Saffrons have leapfrogged Westmeath. Darren Gleeson’s charges have run the Cats, Dubs and Déise close in recent weeks, but are yet to take a scalp in the top tier.

You can watch the full debate and rationale for the placings in Our Game’s Thursday show on YouTube here.
