LAR Corbett joins fellow All Star Noel McGrath in a high-powered Tipperary full-forward line for Sunday's National Hurling League clash with Dublin.

Corbett is one of three changes from the team that was picked but never got to play Kilkenny. He replaces Michael Webster, Darren Gleeson takes over the goalkeeping duties from Brendan Cummins and All Star Conor O'Mahony comes in at centre-back at the expense of Declan Fanning.

Cork feature seven changes as manager Denis Walsh tries out a much less experienced side against the new-look Limerick tomorrow night.

Despite scoring a goal against Offaly, Aisake O hAilpin is replaced by Michael Cussen and his brother Sean Og is also replaced by Ray Ryan at wing-back. Martin Coleman replaces Donal Og Cusack in goals, Eoin Cadogan returns to start at full-back and Conor O'Sullivan comes in at corner-back, while Fintan O'Leary and Graham Calnan come into the starting forwards.

Justin McCarthy's new-look Limerick, who were beaten by Galway first day out, feature just one change. Cathal Moore, who started at wing-back last week, is abroad this week and is replaced by Mike Carr.

The Wexford hurling team to play Down shows a number of changes from the side which beat Westmeath last week. Andrew Shore replaces Darren Nolan, Tomas Waters starts at full-forward and Jim Berry replaces Stephen Banville. PJ Nolan and Malachy Travers make up a new midfield partnership with Willie Doran operating at centre forward.

PJ Banville returns for the Wexford footballers for their O'Byrne Cup Shield Final against Carlow.

Adrian Power replaces goalkeeper Clinton Hennessy in an otherwise unchanged Waterford team to play Galway but one notable inclusion among their substitutes is Eoin McGrath who is back from suspension.
