TIPPERARY HAVE NAMED an unchanged side for Sunday’s Munster semi-final showdown against Kerry.

The Premier are hoping to build on the 22-point thrashing they dished out against Waterford in their opening round tie.

Colin O’Riordan, who was crowned U21 Footballer of the Year today, has shaken off an injury to be named to start while fellow U21 star Steven O’Brien will start at midfield.

There’s only eight survivors from the Tipperary team that were heavily beaten when they last faced Kerry in Munster championship in 2013.

Evan Comerford, Seamus Kennedy, O’Brien, O’Riordan, Ger Mulhair, Michael Quinlivan and Brian Fox are the new additions to the side.
