Galway & Clare draw in classic at Croke Park

Ya cant bate the Hurling, as an intelligent man would say. The championship has giving us another classic this year with current All Ireland Champions Galway drawing in a classic against a fantastic Clare side.

The epic encounter was level 9 times, as Galway superstar Joe Canning and Gearóid McInerney remain huge doubts for the mouth-watering replay.

The game produced 94 mins of madness and master-class hurling with the epic encounter ending at Galway 1-30 Clare 1-30.
