Leinster hurling boss Noel Skehan has named an unchanged side for Saturday's historic Railway Cup final at the Giulio Onesti Sports Complex in Rome.
The final will be the first inter-provincial decider held outside of Ireland and Kilkenny legend Skehan has stuck with a winning formula.
There are changes to the subs bench though with David O'Connor (Wexford), Brendan Murphy (Offaly) and Paul Cuddy (Laois) called up.
