WATERFORD HAVE MADE one change to their starting XV for Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling championship final.

Neil Montgomery has replaced Jake Dillon – and lines out at centre forward. Stephen O’Keeffe is in goal; Ian Kenny, Conor Prunty and Shane McNulty form the full-back line; Calum Lyons, Tadhg de Burca and the evergreen Kevin Moran comprise the half-backs; Jamie Barron and Kieran Bennett are at midfield; Jack Fagan, Montgomery and Stephen Bennett are the half-forward trio with Dessie Hutchinson, Austin Gleeson and Jack Prendergast named in the full-forward line.

Limerick, meanwhile, also named their team for Sunday’s decider and were boosted by the news that Aaron Gillane has convinced boss John Kiely he is fit enough to play in Sunday’s decider.
