LEINSTER SCHOOLS RUGBY Cup winner Alan Tynan will start in Sunday’s Munster minor football final after being brought into the Tipperary starting side to face Kerry.

Tynan’s inclusion is one of four changes from the team that defeated Clare in the semi-final tie in May.

A schools rugby winner with Cistercian College Roscrea, Tynan is named to start at full-forward for the clash at Fitzgerald Stadium.
