Conor Gleeson will miss tomorrow’s All-Ireland SHC quarter-final against Tipperary as Waterford opted not to contest his one-match ban.

After exploring the possibility of seeking a Central Hearings Committee meeting on the basis that the defender’s red card against Galway was technically wrong, the Déise ultimately chose not to forward the case.

Gleeson was shown a red card prior to the start of the second half in last Saturday’s qualifier for a striking incident against Joe Canning at the end of the first half.

There was strong consideration given to opposing the Central Competitions Control Committee’s proposed one-game suspension for the Fourmilewater man. However, it was believed they had little chance of having the penalty quashed to free him up for the game in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Liam Cahill has selected Shane McNulty, who featured in last year's All-Ireland final, at corner-back in Gleeson's place in an otherwise unchanged line-up.

WATERFORD (SHC v Tipperary): Shaun O'Brien (De La Salle); Ian Kenny (Ballygunner), Conor Prunty (Abbeyside), Shane McNulty (De La Salle); Calum Lyons (Ballyduff Lower), Shane Bennett (Ballysaggart), Kieran Bennett (Ballysaggart); Jamie Barron (Fourmilewater), Peter Hogan (Ballygunner); Jack Fagan (De La Salle), Jack Prendergast (Lismore), Stephen Bennett (Ballysaggart); Dessie Hutchinson (Ballygunner), Austin Gleeson (Mount Sion), Patrick Curran (Dungarvan)
