THERE are changes aplenty on the Limerick and Clare teams as the counties look to maintain their 100 per cent records in Division 1B of the Allianz Hurling League.

The pacesetters look set for a winner takes all promotion shootout in their last round of group fixtures but before that, they’ll hope to take care of business against Laois and Kerry.

Limerick welcome Laois to the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday evening and manager TJ Ryan has made six changes to the team that won against Offaly last time out.

Goalkeeper Barry Hennessy, Seanie O’Brien, Paudie O’Brien, Pat Ryan, Graeme Mulcahy and Kevin O’Brien come into the starting line-up.

Captain and goalkeeper Nickie Quaid, Richie English, Dan Morrissey, Barry O’Connell, Cian Lynch and Barry Nash drop out of the team.

For Clare, there are four changes to the team that accounted for Laois as Oisin O’Brien comes in for a debut at corner back, in place of Cian Dillon.

Donal Touhy replaces Andrew Fahy in goal and in attack, Colm Galvin and Conor McGrath are in for Gearoid O’Connell and Colin Ryan.
