Banner Needs Best Performance To Advance – Guilfoyle

Former Clare captain Tommy Guilfoyle feels the Banner will need to produce the performance of the year if they’re to advance to the last four of the All Ireland Hurling championship.

Defending champions Tipperary provide the opposition in Saturday’s Quarter Final tie, in what will be the first meeting between the sides since 2012.

Clare will be looking to bounce back from defeat against Cork in last weekends Munster Final, while Tipperary come into the game off the back of a dominant display against Dublin the qualifiers.


Guilfoyle says it’s a day when there can be no regrets:

Meanwhile a former Munster championship winner with the Premier says the quality of ball to the Clare forwards is something Tipperary must be wary of on Saturday.

It’s expected that Shane O’Donnell, Aron Shanagher and Conor McGrath will be picked in the inside line once more, and Michael Doyle says they will need improved supply to be effective.
