2005 All-Star Paul Kelly, who came on as a substitute in the 1-11 to 1-07 defeat of Antrim ten days ago, will make his first start of the 2006 NHL at left half-back.

There is also a new look half-forward line with Shane McGrath, John Devane and this season's captain Ger "Redser" O'Grady lining up together on the 40.

Eoin Kelly, who sustained a hamstring injury whilst playing for Limerick IT in the Fitzgibbon Cup last month, makes a welcome return to the panel and is listed among the substitutes.

Diarmaid Fitzgerald, Seamus Butler and John Carroll are all in the sick bay.

TIPPERARY (NHL v Galway) - B Cummins; P Curran, P Maher, M Ryan; E Corcoran, C O'Mahoney, P Kelly; L England, C Morrissey; S McGrath, J Devane, G O'Grady (capt); J O'Brien, D Fanning, D Egan.
