Both teams started well with Waterford charging into a four point lead in the opening stages but Kilkenny took a 1-10 to 0-11 lead to the dressing room at half time. On the restart Kilkenny once again started brightly and held the lead right through to the end eventually running out 2-21 to 0-21 winners.
