Big names boost Waterford hopes while it's as you were for Rebels

DEREK MCGRATH WILL be hoping his Waterford side can back up a win at Croke Park last weekend, with a victory over their off-form neighbours on Sunday at Walsh Park.

Anther win for the Deise would all but seal a quarter-final place and they’ve stengthened the spine of their side with several switches.

Maurice Shanahan — who scored one point after his introduction form the bench last week – gets the nod ahead of Patrick Curran. Stephen O’Keeffe is between the posts once again while Colin Dunford goes into midfield in place of Kevin Moran who moves to the half forward line. Conor Gleeson drops out of the 15.

Darragh Lyons meanwhile, replaces Stephen Daniels.

Kieran Kingston has stuck with the same starting XV that lost to Kilkenny last weekend, meanwhile.
