Hurling was the winner in Thurles on Saturday night when Kilkenny and Tipperary played out a pulsating draw in Round 4 of the Allianz League. The draw puts Tipperary safely through to the quarter-finals while Kilkenny will need to defeat Dublin in their final game in Parnell Park in two weeks time to possibly qualify for the quarter-final. Clare, Waterford and Cork are all on four points so the winner of the Clare v Waterford game in Ennis will qualify. Cork entertain Tipperary in Pairc Ui Rinn and they too will be looking for a win to move on to 6 points and a quarter-final berth. Nothing is certain and it will all be decided on Sunday 26th with all games having a 3pm throw in. What is certain is that Kilkenny's point earned in Thurles on Saturday night could yet prove crucial.
