Fresh look to Tipp selection

Fresh look to Tipp selection

Tipperary manager Peter Creedon has included four Championship debutants in his team for Sunday's Munster SFC quarter-final against Kerry in Thurles (throw-in 2pm).

Michael Quinlivan is the only player from Tipp's 2011 All-Ireland minor winning side who will start against the Kingdom. He joins captain Philip Austin and fellow debutant Alan Maloney in the full-forward line.

The other newcomers are wing back Alan Campbell and wing forward Shane Scully. Tipp are missing influential duo Barry Grogan and Brian Jones who are working in America this summer.

The Premier County are rank outsiders for Creedon's first Championship match in charge. Indeed, Tipp have lost their first game in the Munster Championship in each of the last eight seasons.

They were beaten by Kerry in both 2010 and 2011 - last summer they suffered a 2-16 to 0-11 first round defeat to the Kingdom before losing to Laois in the All-Ireland qualifiers.

The winners of Sunday's tie will meet Cork in a Munster semi-final on Sunday, June 10.

TIPPERARY (SFC v Kerry): Paul Fitzgerald; Andrew Morrissey, Paddy Codd, Ciarán McDonald; Brian Fox, Robbie Costigan, Alan Campbell; George Hannigan, Hugh Coghlan; Lorcan Egan, Peter Acheson, Shane Scully; Alan Maloney, Michael Quinlivan, Philip Austin (capt).
