UNDER PRESSURE DUBLIN boss Ger Cunningham has made two changes to the side that were hammered by Tipperary in the opening round of the league.

Eamonn Dillon, who has recently returned from injury, replaces Cian O’Sullivan on the half-forward line while Chris Bennett comes in for Oisin O’Rorke at corner-forward.

Dublin take on Cork in Saturday’s clash at Pairc Ui Rinn.

Meanwhile Kieran Kingston has kept faith with the Rebels XV who achieved an impressive 0-21 to 0-11 win over Clare last weekend.

Anthony Nash saved a penalty against the Banner while Glen Rovers sharpshooter Pa Horgan led the scoring with five points. Daniel Kearney was very lively in midfield and he again partners Bill Cooper.
