NINE OF THE Waterford team who lost out by 26 points to Kerry in last year’s Munster semi final start in this year’s opener with Clare on Saturday evening.

Paul Whyte remains at full forward, the 22-year-old was one to have come out of last year’s 4-21 to 1-4 defeat with his head held high.

There are nine clubs represented, with just two Ballinacourty players making the starting fifteen despite their county championship success in 2013.

One man Waterford won’t be able to call on in Ennis is Gary Hurney. The Ballinacourty man retired at the end of last year’s club championship concluding a fifteen year inter-county career.
