Dublin goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton appears to have won his fitness battle after being named in the Dublin team to face Laois in tomorrow's Leinster final.

Jim Gavin's side are looking to win an eighth provincial title in-a-row, as well as a 13th in 14 seasons. For Dublin stalwart Cluxton, it would be his 14th Leinster title. The Dublin captain was injured in the semi-final win over Longford in a collision with James McGivney that saw the forward receive a red card.

Jim Gavin subsequently said that Cluxton was nursing a back injury following the incident, but the Dubs boss has named him in an unchaged side to take on Laois at Croke Park tomorrow.

The game throws in at 4pm.
