JOHNNY GLYNN WILL make his first start for Galway in two years after being dramatically brought into the team for Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling final.

Glynn last started for the Tribesmen in the final loss to Kilkenny two years ago, moving to New York before the start of the 2016 season.

But the Ardrahan man has been named at left half-forward by the Galway management with Niall Burke losing out in the only change from the semi-final win over Tipperary.

Waterford have made a single change also with Tadhg de Búrca returning in defence after missing the success against Cork through suspension.

He replaces another player who is banned with Conor Gleeson missing out after being shown a red card in that victory against the Rebels.

‘The over-reliance on Joe Canning is gone and I’m just about giving the nod to Galway in a very tight game’

‘At the time I was kind of in a happy bubble. Then I got brought down to earth fairly quick’
