Laois hurling manager Damien Fox has made two changes in personnel to his team for tomorrow's NHL Division Two final against Wicklow at Semple Stadium (throw-in 2pm).
James Walsh has failed to recover in time from a shoulder injury, which was sustained in a challenge game against Kilkenny last Sunday, and his midfield spot is taken by Shane Dollard.
Meanwhile, Conor Dunne comes into a new look half-back line which sees U-21 Matthew Whelan and stalwart James Young switch roles at centre-back and centre forward respectively.
John Brophy also moves to the half-forward line, while Joe Phelan now partners Jason Phelan and Tommy Fitzgerald in the full-forward line.
LAOIS (NHL v Wicklow): P Mullaney; B Campion, D Rooney, K Fitzpatrick; M McEvoy, M Whelan, C Dunne; J Fitzpatrick, S Dollard; W Hyland, J Young, J Brophy; Joe Phelan, T Fitzgerald, Jason Phelan.
