Galway and Dublin name Walsh Cup sides

Former captain David Collins is set to return for the Galway hurlers in Sunday's Walsh Cup final against Dublin (Parnell Park, throw-in 12.45pm), over two years after his last appearance for the Tribesmen.

Collins broke his ankle back in late 2007 but following some time away in Australia, he has now linked up with John McIntyre's squad with a view to returning to the inter-county scene.

The 2005 Young Hurler of the Year is listed among the Galway substitutes for the Walsh Cup decider against Dublin, but McIntyre will be without the services of Richie Murray and Andy Coen.

The experienced duo have pulled out of the Galway panel, conceding that they are not in a position "to meet the commitment required due to work and other factors".

Meanwhile, Dublin manager Anthony Daly has made one change to his side for Sunday's clash. Goalkeeper Gary Maguire returns between the sticks in place of Alan Nolan.

A Dubs line-up is also due to play Tipperary in a challenge match at St. Brigid's Russell Park venue on Saturday night (throw-in 7.30pm).

The likes of Joey Boland, Liam Rushe and David O'Callaghan, who all lined out for their colleges in the Walsh Cup competition, will start against Tipp.
