Limerick name unchanged side

Limerick hurling boss Joe McKenna has kept faith with the team that came from a point down in injury-time to draw with Tipperary last Sunday for the Munster SHC replay at the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday.

Limerick hurling boss Joe McKenna has kept faith with the team that came from a point down in injury-time to draw with Tipperary last Sunday for the Munster SHC replay at the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday.

However, there is no place for Murroe Boher's Pat Tobin, who scored two crucial points when he was sprung from the bench last weekend.

Defender-turned-attacker TJ Ryan, who scored 1-7 of Limerick's 2-14 tally last weekend, is again named next to his brother Donie in the full-forward line.

McKenna has resisted making changes to his half-back line, who dominated Tipperary for much of last weekend's game, despite skipper Ollie Moran moving out to midfield in the second-half.

LIMERICK (SHC v Tipperary): T Houlihan; D Reale, S Lucey, M Foley; O Moran, B Geary, P Lawlor; P O'Grady, D O'Grady; C Fitzgerald, N Moran, A O'Shaughnessy, D Ryan, TJ Ryan, D Sheehan.
