DARRAGH FIVES IS the main beneficiary from the suspension that rules Stephen Bennett out for the Waterford senior hurlers this weekend.

With Bennett serving a one-match ban for pulling Damien Cahalane’s faceguard during the Deise’s Munster semi-final defeat to Cork, Fives has been drafted into the forward line by manager Derek McGrath for their meeting with Offaly in the All-Ireland qualifiers.

Although positional switches are likely, the inclusion of Fives is Waterford’s only personnel change from the loss to Cork for Saturday’s game at O’Connot Park in Tullamore (3.00pm).
