Pure hurling joy

On Sunday last in Croke Park the hurlers of Waterford and

Kilkenny served up a game to grace any occasion. While the

pundits and the oddsmakers very much came down on the side of the reigning champions, there was a reasoning in many quarters that this Waterford side had the ability and the confidence to

topple the champions.

That confidence took a terrible tumble in the Munster Final as Tipperary took full advantage of a lethargic display by the Deise. However roll on the tape where Waterford clinically disposed of a Wexford side who themselves were on the back of two superb wins in the knockout stages. Many of this Waterford panel turned out for the under 21 side in the Munster Final which saw the Sean Power managed side give a huge second half display to defeat Tipperary. On Sunday the

Croker here we come!

The first of the 2016 All-Ireland semi-finals will take place in Croke Park on Sunday next when reigning champions Kilkenny will lay down their title against a Waterford team who clearly have a very talented outfit. The Cats have come through an unbelieveably successful period of success under the stewardship of Brian Cody with eleven hurling titles during his tenure since 1999.

Indeed added to fifteen Leinster wins and eight National leagues titles, there is no disputing the fact that he has guided the county to unprecedented success. However now the team from the Marble City may well be facing their biggest challenge.

Waterford are certainly a very talented team and on their day, well capable of overturning their much vaunted opponents. However there are a number of imponderables.

Waterford United 2 - Cobh Ramblers 2

Ramblers fight back to take a point

Waterford United were in cruise control during the opening 45 minutes of this game which was played at the RSC on Friday night and they went into the dressing room leading two nil. Had they taken all of the chances that came their way they could have been even further ahead. The second half was a completely different story as they allowed Cobh Ramblers get a foothold on the game and as a result the visitors scored twice to level matters. It was only when parity was restored that the hosts lifted the pace once again and they peppered the Ramblers goal in the dying minutes but unfortunately time ran out and they had to settle for a point. The fact that Paul Hunt in the Cobh goal

Waterford United crumble in Stradbrook against Cabinteely

Cabinteely 2 - Waterford United 0

A disjointed Waterford United were blown away by Cabinteely in Stradbrook on Friday night last and their play-off hopes are now more or less over unless there is a truly remarkable turnaround during the remainder of the season. They now have four home games on the trot and nothing less than 12 points from those outings will keep their season alive. Goals from Ben Hanrahan (56 mins) and Joe Doyle (72 mins) gave the home club victory on Friday last. Next up for the Blues is a visit from Cobh Ramblers this Friday. The Waterford manager Roddy Collins tried to explain what went wrong when he spoke after last weeks poor performance.

"We have been trying to keep it going and hoping that you would have enough morale in the

On Sunday last in famed Semple Stadium (once called Tom Semple's Field) in Thurles it was Waterford who bounced right back from their Tipperary Munster Final defeat with a superbly controlled 0-21 to 0-11 victory over Southeast neighbours Wexford.

There was great anticipation in many quarters that this quarter final of the All-Ireland series would be a definitive game in the Wexford comeback. Indeed many believed that Wexford having beaten Cork would pose a huge mountain for Derek McGrath and his charges to negotiate, more especially, following the below par display in the Gaelic Grounds against Tipperary. All the talk however, paled into significance as the Deise struck from the start. The opening minute saw both Liam og McGovern of Wexford and Austin Gleeson miss the target before the superb Kevin Moran carved open the defence for Maurice Shanahan to point.
