With injuries clearing, Tipperary manager Babs Keating has been able to name an unchanged team for Sunday's second Munster SHC semi-final replay against Limerick at the Gaelic Grounds, throw-in 3.30pm.

There is one positional switch with team captain Benny Dunne now listed at left half-forward and former Under-21 starlet Darragh Egan moving to centre-forward.

Two of Tipp's biggest injury doubts, wing back Eamonn Corcoran (groin) and midfielder Shane McGrath (chest) were passed fit last night for what is their side's third clash with the Shannonsiders in recent weeks.

Young Killenaule net minder Gerry Kennedy, who made his championship debut in last week's drawn game, will continue as Tipp's goalkeeper with three-time All-Star Brendan Cummins remaining on the bench.

The winner of Sunday's game, should there be one, will go on to tackle Waterford in the Munster final on July 8.

Tipp's top scorer over the two drawn games was Eoin Kelly, who tallied up 0-11 (6f). Darragh Egan (1-5) and Seamus Butler (1-3) have also impressed in front of goal.

TIPPERARY (SHC v Limerick) - G Kennedy; E Buckley, D Fanning, D Fitzgerald; E Corcoran, C O'Mahony, H Maloney; S McGrath, J Woodlock; J Carroll, D Egan, B Dunne (capt); S Butler, E Kelly, L Corbett.
