Stapleton comes in as Tipperary make a single change for Kilkenny

The Borris-Ileigh man is the only switch in Eamon O’Shea’s team for Sunday’s Division 1A clash.

EAMON O’SHEA HAS opted for continuity with his team selection ahead of Sunday’s Allianz Hurling League Division 1A clash with Kilkenny.

Paddy Stapleton of Borris-Ileigh is the only new face in the side after last weekend’s 2-13 to 0-16 victory over Waterford. The 28-year-old’s inclusion at left half back means John O’Dwyer drops out of the team.

Otherwise, O’Shea has gone for the same men who ensured success against the Déise in Thurles. Kilkenny come into this game off the back of a 1-16 to 0-18 defeat to Clare in Ennis, meaning Tipp will be expecting something of a backlash.

Throw-in at Nowlan Park on Sunday is at 2.00pm.

TIPPERARY: Darren Gleeson (Portroe); Cathal Barrett (Holycross-Ballycahill), Conor O’Mahony (Newport), Michael Cahill (Thurles Sarsfields); Shane McGrath (Ballinahinch), Padraic Maher (Thurles Sarsfields), Paddy Stapleton (Borris-Ileigh); Brendan Maher (Borris-Ileigh – Captain), Conor O’Brien (Eire Og Annacarty Donohill); Kieran Bergin (Killenaule), Noel McGrath (Loughmore-Castleiney), James Woodlock (Drom & Inch); Seamus Callanan (Drom & Inch), Paddy Murphy (Nenagh Eire Og), Jason Forde (Silvermines).
