Two changes for Kerry hurlers

Kerry manager Jerry Molyneaux has made two changes to his side for Sunday's NHL Division Two final against Dublin (Thurles, throw-in 1.30pm).

Team captain Michael Conway has been named at centre forward. The Lixnaw clubman sat out last weekend's semi-final win over Mayo due to a infected knee. Aidan Cronin makes way for the Semple Stadium clash.

The other switch sees Andrew Keane of the Crotta O'Neills club take over at centre back from David Slattery.

Much of Kerry's attacking focus will fall on the shoulders of Kilmoyley's Shane Brick, who struck eight crucial frees in the 1-17 to 1-16 defeat of Mayo.

Brick, who was approached to play for Limerick last season, was in excellent scoring form during Kerry's Division 2B campaign, hitting 0-9 in both of the wins over London and Kildare.

Molyneaux will confirm his substitutes bench on Sunday.

KERRY (NHL v Dublin) - PJ O'Gorman; John Fitzgerald, Michael Lucid, Mike Quilter; Kieran O'Sullivan, Andrew Keane, Colin Harris; Aidan Boyle, John Griffin; Shane Brick, Michael Conway (capt), Darren Young; John Egan, John Mike Dooley, Mike Slattery.
