Tipperary manager Babs Keating has made three changes to his side for Sunday's mouth-watering NHL Division 1B clash with champions Kilkenny (Thurles, throw-in 2.30pm).

Liam England, Niall Curran and Shane McGrath, the three players who made their league debuts in the 2-15 to 2-15 draw with Limerick last week, have been replaced in the starting line-up.

Knocknavilla clubman Damien McGrath, who came off the bench against the Shannonsiders, replaces England in the half-back line, Ken Dunne, brother of right wing forward Benny, starts at midfield in place of Curran, while McGrath has made way for Johnny Enright in the forward reshuffle.

Enright will line out in the left corner with Benny Dunne, part of a full-forward line that struck 1-11 between them last week, shifting back to right wing forward.

TIPPERARY (NHL v Kilkenny) - Brendan Cummins; Declan Fanning, Philip Maher, Paul Curran; Damien McGrath, Conor O'Mahoney, Eamonn Corcoran; Ken Dunne, Eoin Brislane; Benny Dunne, Colin Morrissey, Ger O'Grady (capt); Seamus Butler, John O'Brien, Johnny Enright.
