MICHAEL RYAN HAS made two changes to his Tipperary team for Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling championship semi-final clash with Galway.

Goalkeeper Darren Gleeson returns in place of Darragh Mooney while Michael Cahill slots in at corner-back with Tomás Hamill losing out.

James Barry moves to full-back to accommodate the defensive switch.

It means that the reigning champions will take to the field with 14 of the players who started the 2016 All-Ireland decider against Kilkenny.

Meanwhile, Galway boss Michael Donoghue has kept change to a minimum.

Cathal Mannion returns from injury and takes his place at wing-forward with Jason Flynn stepping aside.
