A member of the Tipperary Senior Hurling backroom team says they’re braced for a huge battle with Clare in Sunday’s National League opener.
The Premier come to Cusack Park looking to inflict a third defeat on the Banner in the last 12 months, after wins in last years league clash along with the All Ireland Quarter Final.
Tipperary’s last visit to Ennis was for a last eight tie in 2016, which the Banner edged by a single point en route to the title.
Tipp selector Declan Fanning is expecting another tight encounter on Sunday.
