Two changes for Galway

Galway manager Conor Hayes has made two changes in personnel and a number of positional switches for tomorrow's NHL Division 1B clash with Limerick (Pearse Stadium, throw-in 2.30pm).

Sylane clubman Kevin Brady replaces David O'Donoghue in the half-forward line, while Colin Coen, who made his championship debut last summer, fills in at left corner back with Ger Mahon switching to wing back in place of David Hayes.

The Tribesmen, who were shocked by Antrim last weekend, are still without their Portumna players Ollie Canning, Andy Smith and Damien Hayes, as well as Salthill footballer Alan Kerins, with the All-Ireland Club championships still on-going.

Wing back David Hardiman and centre forward David Forde are nursing injuries.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Liam Donoghue has retained the Galway captaincy for the 2006 season. The Clarinbridge star skippered Hayes' men through to the All-Ireland SHC final last year.

GALWAY (NHL v Limerick) - L Donoghue (capt); D Joyce, T Regan, C Coen; G Mahon, C Dervan, D Collins; F Healy, S Kavanagh; K Brady, E Cloonan, R Murray; G Farragher, N Healy, K Broderick.

Substitutes: P Dullaghan, L Hodgins, D Hayes, MJ Quinn, D Donoghue, M Coughlan, D Tierney, A Callanan, A Coen.
