Cork U20 pitching manager Pat Ryan praised his players’ ‘savage’ performance in the second half to keep Cork’s Munster and All-Ireland U20 title defense alive.
“Tipperary blew us away in the first half, they probably should have been a bit more up at half time. We just let them throw themselves too easily, we didn’t get stuck in them, we didn’t put our bodies in danger. We hunted by one, they hunted by three and by four. We just asked the guys to give us that effort in the second half and see where it got us, ”Ryan said of the half-time message.
