A fine performance from the Tipperary half back line formed the basis for a well earned win over Galway on Sunday. The Tipp backs stifled the Galway forwards and choked off any chance the Tribesmen had of adding to their points total in the senior hurling championship. At the other end of the field, Tipp made good use their possession and with 15 minutes to go the game was as good as over.
