Dual players Stephen Lucey and Conor Fitzgerald are set to line out with the Limerick hurlers for the first time since their controversial decision to opt out of the panel for Sunday's National Hurling League relegation clash against Waterford at the Gaelic Grounds.

Both are available for manager Joe McKenna following the footballers' relegation from the top flight last weekend.

The players resumed training in recent weeks after McKenna ironed out an agreement with his football counterpart Liam Kearns.

Lucey will line out at right corner-back, with Fitzgerald going to left corner-forward. Team captain Ollie Moran is in the heart of defence, with brother Niall in the half-forward line.

LIMERICK (SH v Waterford): T Houlihan; S Lucey, TJ Ryan, M Foley; P O'Dwyer, O Moran, B Geary; P O'Grady, D O'Grady; A O'Connor, J O'Brien, N Moran; D Ryan, S O'Connor, C Fitzgerald.
