JAMES HORAN HAS rang the changes to his Mayo starting side for Sunday’s trip to face Meath as they bid to bounce back from last Saturday’s loss to Dublin.

James McCormack is drafted in at full-back with Eoin O’Donoghue named at wing-back while Tommy Conroy and Kevin McLoughlin are selected for the corner-forward roles.

Oisin Mullin, Colm Boyle, Aidan O’Shea and Jordan Flynn are the players to make way from last Saturday’s clash in Castlebar. Boyle went off injured in that game with a knock to his knee while Flynn is suspended after being shown a red card in the 14th minute against Dublin.

Mayo defeated Meath 2-17 to 0-14 when the counties met in the Super 8s last July with just four players from that starting side – Brendan Harrison, Stephen Coen, Fergal Boland and Kevin McLoughlin – selected for this game. McCormack, O’Donoghue, James Carr and Michael Plunkett all came on as substitutes.

Throw-in is 2pm at Páirc Tailteann for Sunday’s Division 1 football league tie.
