TIPPERARY MANAGERS MICHAEL Ryan and Liam Kearns have both made changes for their Allianz League ties this weekend.

After last Sunday’s loss to Clare, Ryan has made six changes for their Division 1A hurling tie on Saturday night against Waterford.

Sean O’Brien, Joe O’Dwyer, Brendan Maher, Dan McCormack, Michael Breen and John McGrath all come into the starting side. Corner-back O’Brien will be making his league debut.

That means Donagh Maher, Seamus Kennedy, Tom Fox, Conor Kenny, Ger Browne and Patrick Maher are the Tipperary players to make way after that clash with the Banner in Ennis.

In football Kearns has handed a starting debut to full-back John Meagher and brought in Liam Casey at midfield for Sunday’s Division 2 tie at home to Roscommon.

Both players came on as substitutes in last Saturday’s victory over Cork with Emmet Moloney and Liam Boland dropping to the bench.
