Tipp-top Flynn fires Waterford.

PAUL FLYNN lit the fuse of a famous victory as Waterford shrugged off the 'failures' tag with a bang at Pairc Ui Chaoimh yesterday.

The ace marksman was in scintillating form as the unfancied Decies shot down All-Ireland runners-up Tipperary to book a place in the Munster final.

Barring defeats of lowly Kerry, it was Waterford's first Championship win of any significance in six years.

And jubilant manager Gerald McCarthy says his side have got what it takes to go all the way and follow Clare's example by charging out of the hurling wilderness.

"This is a team capable of beating anybody," he claimed, as the Waterford contingent in a 30,000-strong crowd celebrated one of the county's finest hours.

"If we could take all our scores on any day I don't think there is a team that would hurl with us."

But potentially stiffer tests lie ahead for the League runners-up - the face the winners of Sunday week's titanic clash between Cork and Clare in the quest for Munster glory.
