Tipperary manager Seamus McCarthy has made one change to his side for Sunday's Tommy Murphy Cup final against Wexford at Croke Park.

Having seen off Roscommon last time out, Tipp have included Fethard's Aidan Fitzgerald for Stephen Murphy at right half-forward for the second-tier decider.

Team captain and so often the team's top scorer, Declan Browne is named at full-forward, while the Premier county can count on the experience of Robbie Costigan, Benny Hickey and Niall Curran at headquarters.

All-Star winner Brian Lacey is also included at centre back. The talented defender won two Leinster titles at Croke Park in his previous inter-county career with Kildare.

TIPPERARY (SF v Wexford): P Fitzgerald; D Byrne, N Curran, P King; P Morrissey, B Lacey, R Costigan; K Mulryan, N Fitzgerald; A Fitzgerald, B Hickey, B Hahessy; B Mulvihill, D Browne, D O'Brien.
