STAR DEFENDER JAMES Barry has been named to start for the Tipperary hurlers in their league meeting with All-Ireland champions Limerick on Saturday evening [Gaelic Grounds, throw-in 7pm].

Barry takes up the full-back position in an otherwise unchanged team that scored an impressive victory over Clare in their opening Division 1A fixture.

Captain Seamus Callanan has been picked at full-forward again after hitting 2-7 last weekend while Ronan Maher slots in at centre-back with Padraic Maher and Barry Heffernan out on the wings.

The midfield pairing of Robert Byrne and Michael Breen remains the same while Noel McGrath starts at centre-forward again.
