LAR CORBETT MAKES his return for Tipperary as one of three changes ahead of Saturday’s All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Round 1 clash with Galway.

The 33-year-old has struggled with a knee injury this season, but Eamon O’Shea can call on the experienced forward for the encounter at Semple Stadium.

Corbett comes into the team for Niall O’Meara in attack.

Elsewhere, there’s a new midfield pairing for Tipp as Ronan Maher of Thurles Sarsfields and Drom-Inch’s James Woodlock replace Kieran Bergin and Shane McGrath.

Maher is set for his championship debut in Thurles. The midfielder won an All-Ireland Minor title with Tipp in 2012.

Throw-in at Semple Stadium on Saturday is at 7.00pm.
