Corbett & McGrath’s Big Build-Up is here – our new hurling analysis show


Derek McGrath, Lar Corbett, highlights, match-ups and a tactics board.

As hurling preview shows go, Corbett and McGrath’s Big Build-Up is a must-watch.

SportsJOE and Centra have teamed up for the All-Ireland senior hurling championship and, throughout the summer, we’re bringing you one hell of an analysis series.

Waterford manager for five years, Derek McGrath has first-hand experience of setting teams up against these current opposing managers and players and he brings with him an unfiltered tactical approach to discussions.

Lar Corbett, two-time All-Ireland winner, has had recent changing room exposure and on-field battles right up to his retirement in 2015 when he bowed out as one of Tipperary’s greatest. He knows what makes players tick, he knows what puts them off their games and he knows his hurling.

Between them, the pair offer a special blend of insight into the modern-day game and, as much as an education the show is for fans, there’s debate and craic along the way too.
