TIPPERARY BOSS EAMON O’Shea has made two changes to his team for Sunday’s Munster hurling final against Waterford.

In the left corner, Conor O’Brien loses out with Ronan Maher dropping from the half-back line to fill the number 4 shirt.

Michael Breen, who scored a goal after coming on as sub against Limerick in the semi-final victory at the Gaelic Grounds, has been handed a full senior championship debut at right-half-back.

The front eight remains the same for the Premier County.
