8 changes for Tipperary side ahead of Kilkenny showdown

The Premier have made several switches in the wake of their loss to Cork in their league opener.

TIPPERARY BOSS EAMON O’Shea has wielded the axe ahead of Sunday’s Allianz HL Division 1A tie  against Kilkenny.

The Semple Stadium showdown sees O’Shea overhaul his team in the wake of their heavy opening round defeat to Cork.

In all the Tipperary boss has made eight changes to his team with  Darren Gleeson starting in goal in place of Brendan Cummins as Tipperary are set to share the goalkeeping duties between the pair during the league.

Other changes see Michael Cahill and Conor O’Mahony drafted into their defence while Adrian Ryan will start in midfield. In attack Lar Corbett, John O’Brien, Eoin Kelly and Pa Bourke all are handing starting berths.

Injury rules out Shane McGrath while work commitments prevent Patrick Maher from play while Conor O’Brien, Johnny Ryan, Seamus Callanan, Brian O’Meara and Shane Bourke are others to miss out.

TIPPERARY: Darren Gleeson (Portroe); Paddy Stapleton (Borris-Ileigh), Paul Curran (Mullinahone), Michael Cahill (Thurles Sarsfields); Padraic Maher (Thurles Sarsfields), Conor O’Mahony (Newport), Donagh Maher (Burgess); Adrian Ryan (Templederry Kenyons), Brendan Maher (Borris–Ileigh); Noel McGrath (Loughmore Castleiney),  Lar Corbett (Thurles Sarsfields), John O’Brien (Toomevara); John O’Dwyer (Killenaule), Eoin Kelly (Mullinahone), Pa Bourke (Thurles Sarsfields).
