Only one enforced change as Harte shows faith in Tyrone XV for visit of Dublin

Harte has largely stuck with the same starting side that comprehensively saw off both Cork and Roscommon.

MANAGER MICKEY HARTE has made just one change to the Tyrone starting XV to face Dublin in both counties’ second Super-8s outing.

Cathal McCarron, withdrawn last weekend with a knee injury, has been ruled out and replaced by Hugh Pat McGeary at corner-back. The Pomeroy man came on for McCarron after just 19 minutes of Tyrone’s resounding win over Roscommon.

Harte has otherwise stuck with the starting side that destroyed both the Rossies and Cork the week before, while Dublin’s team is expected to be named either on Friday evening or Saturday morning.

Throw-in at Healy Park on Saturday is at 7pm.
