TIPPERARY MANAGER MICHAEL Ryan has named his starting side to face Galway in Sunday’s Allianz Hurling League final.

Jason Forde is named to start in midfield, but the Premier County will begin the appeals process against his proposed two-match ban next week.

The Silvermines player has been charged with a category IV infraction, namely ‘any type of assault on an opposing team official’, Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald in this case.

With sharpsooter Seamus Callanan ruled out through injury, John O’Dwyer comes into the Tipperary attack.

Michael Breen is the only other changed starter. He wears the number 11 jersey, as he scored four points from play after coming off the bench in last week’s semi-final win over Wexford.
