LIMERICK HAVE MADE three changes for tonight’s crunch Munster minor hurling playoff against Waterford in Semple Stadium.

Conor Houlihan and Brian Ryan return from injury to start at wing-back and wing-forward respectively while Willie O’Meara starts at midfield.

Ciaran O’Connor, Colum Carroll and Michael Bourke are the players to make way.

Waterford were arguably the better side in their one-point loss to Tipperary in the quarter-final last month, limiting the Premier County to just 1-3 from play, so it’s no surprise Sean Lyons has kept faith with the same XV for this must-win clash.

Throw-in is 7pm with the winners playing Cork in the Munster MHC semi-final in July.
