Ryan out for six weeks as Daly names Dublin side

Ahead of tomorrow's Allianz Hurling League encounter with Tipperary, Dublin manager Anthony Daly has confirmed that Paul Ryan has been ruled out of action for six weeks.

Ahead of tomorrow's Allianz Hurling League encounter with Tipperary, Dublin manager Anthony Daly has confirmed that Paul Ryan has been ruled out of action for six weeks.

Ryan, the top-scorer in last summer's Championship, suffered a grade 2 hamstring tear during last Sunday's high-scoring Division 1A defeat to Kilkenny.

The Ballyboden St. Enda's clubman's place in the Dublin team has gone to Alan McCrabbe, who will make his first league start of 2012 against Tipp at Croke Park (throw-in 5pm).

McCrabbe's inclusion is one of three changes to the team that lined out against Kilkenny last time out.

Gary Maguire replaces Alan Nolan between the posts, with the other change coming in the full-forward line where Naomh Fionnbarra clubman Eamon Dillion takes over from the injured Conor McCormack at right corner forward.

Dillon was a member of last year's Dublin panel that won the Leinster Under-21 Championship, and scored a goal as a substitute in the dramatic loss to Kilkenny.

Meanwhile, another player from that successful U-21 provincial-winning panel, Dean Curran, is listed among the seniors' substitutes for the first time.

DUBLIN (AHL v Tipperary): G Maguire; N Corcoran, P Schutte, R Trainor; M Carton, J Boland, J McCaffrey; S Durkin, S Lambert; L Rushe, R O'Dwyer; D Sutcliffe; E Dillon, D O'Callaghan, A McCrabbe.
