*TJ Reid *knows all about the importance of Kilkenny's clashes with Tipperary and the crafty attacker contributed in style for Brian Cody's charges.
Sprinkled with youthful players, Reid led by example scoring 0-13 including four points from play as the Cats carved out a vital victory.
Having suffered three losses in a row, Waterford required a win against Cork and Austin Gleeson was influential for Derek McGrath's team.
Gleeson rifled over a couple of sweet long range points for the visitors and also fashioned several other scoring opportunities for his colleagues.
A star studded UL outfit delivered when it counted with David Fitzgerald prominent during Saturday's Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon Cup triumph over a spirited DCU.
Fitzgerald struck two long range points and was prominent throughout for Gary Kirby's accomplished side, who excelled throughout the competition.
