Tipperary name their team for first All-Ireland semi-final in 81 years

The Tipperary footballers will, as expected, line-out unchanged for their first All-Ireland semi-final in 81 years, writes Stephen Barry.

Liam Kearns has kept the faith in the same starting 15 since defeating Cork in the Munster semi-final, although there is a positional switch in attack.

Michael Quinlivan will wear the number 11 jersey and can operate as a kick-out and scoring option.

Kevin O’Halloran, Conor Sweeney and Philip Austin make up the full-forward line.
