Lots of players might be quaking, privately at least, at the prospect of facing Nemo Rangers in a Munster club football final.

The Cork City side have won 16 of them and lost only twice.

But that most recent defeat came against Sunday's opponents Clonmel Commercials, who have fond memories of the 2015 meeting when they became the first Tipperary club to win the province.Their record in finals against Nemo is 100%.

"I suppose it's a bit different now in that we played them in 2015," admits Commercials' Seamus Kennedy.

"We've probably six or seven lads facing into their first Munster Club Final. It's new to them but there are a good few of us who have had the experience, which is good, the younger lads can draw on that. 

"We probably would have always looked at the likes of Nemo and Dr Crokes and felt that with the group of players that we had that we could be operating at that level. 

"Absolutely not surprised that Nemo are in a Munster Club Final. Since 2015 they've got back there maybe twice. They've definitely won it once, and they've definitely been knocking around every year. 

"But it's taken us four years to get back here. So we're just trying to make the most of it, really, and delighted that we are back there."

"We're under no illusion about the challenge that's facing us"

Clonmel needed a second-half comeback against Clare's St Joseph's Miltown Malbay to make Sunday's decider while Nemo had a facile victory over Kerry side Austin Stacks.

Kennedy admits Commercials will have to up their game if they are to repeat the heroics of 2015.

"We felt we never got into a proper flow against Miltown-Malbay, and that's probably a credit to them as well and conditions and all the rest," he says. "

"It was a really tough game and I suppose we have a good few areas we feel we can improve on from that and things we want to improve on. 

"We've mainly looked at ourselves. Obviously, we're going to give Nemo the respect that they deserve. They have some unbelievable players, especially in the forward-line. We're mainly trying to iron out the few bits we feel we can improve on.

"We're under no illusion about the challenge that's facing us but we do feel we've a very good group of players at the minute that have put in a huge effort all year. Especially the club players, they've really driven it this year. 

"We're just keen to put our own stamp on the game on Sunday."

Seamus Kennedy scored 0-02 from half-back in the All-Ireland hurling final

Kennedy was an All-Ireland hurling winner this year with Tipperary. The dual-star is a dying breed these days but it's something he's keen to keep doing, at club level at least.

"To be honest with you I played as much football as hurling growing up," he says. "Obviously, Clonmel is a football area. We had our last group game the Sunday after the All-Ireland Final. We were through already so I played that to get the legs moving again and get a bit of running into me. 

"It's great. I love the two of them and having played so much hurling from November until August, it really freshened things up for me. Mentally, I was really looking forward to go back playing the football. 

"Unfortunately we didn't get much of a run with St Mary's (the local hurling club), but the run with Commericals has been so enjoyable. 

"I get a fair bit of slagging now to even kick the thing. I suppose people do just think it's the other way around that's difficult, but it is quite difficult at times to get your eye back in. We've had a lot of games and plenty of good training so after a couple of weeks it's a bit better anyway. I don't know how much better, but it's a bit better."
