Ballygunner will be hoping to win their second Munster Club Senior hurling Championship title when they take on unbeaten Na Piarsaigh in this afternonn’s Provincial Final.
The Gunners have claimed just one Munster title in nine attempts, defeating Blackrock in 2001 while the Limerick champions are unbeaten in the Province.
Ballygunner survived stiff tests against Midleton and Ballyea to reach the decider, while Na Piarsaigh were comfortable winners over Tipp champions, Clonulty-Rossmore in their semi-final.
Gunners defender Wayne Hutchinson told WLR Sport their two Provincial games to date should stand to them today.
Wayne says they’ll have to up their performance levels this afternoon if they’re to overcome the Limerick outfit.
The Limerick side beat the Waterford men by seven points in 2015 and 8 points last year but their forward Shane Dowling expects a tight battle.
Throw-in at Semple Stadium, Thurles is at 2pm and WLR will broadcast the game thanks to George Corbett Skoda, with commentary team Tomás McCarthy and Eoin Murphy.
