TIPPERARY CAPTAIN COLIN O’Riordan has not been named in their starting team for tonight’s EirGrid Munster U21 football final against Cork.

O’Riordan suffered injury and subsequent concussion in a recent senior league game for Tipperary against Sligo, which made him a doubt for the U21 showdown.

The Tipperary management have not named him in their starting fifteen with full-forward John McGrath also set to miss out due to injury.

Luke Boland comes into the team in the half-back line after being selected at centre-back while Ross Mulcahy switches to right half-back.

The other addition sees Kevin O’Halloran drafted into the team at right corner-forward.
