Tipperary recall big guns as Michael Ryan rejigs team for crucial Cork clash
Michael Ryan has brought a number of All Stars back into the Tipperary starting side to face Cork in Thurles this Sunday.
Pressure is on the Premier county after suffering a six-point defeat to Limerick at the Gaelic Grounds in their Munster championship opener, and Ryan has responded by making a number of changes.
After cameos in defeat, Tipp fans will be delighted to see Brendan Maher back in midfield, while Patrick 'Bonner' Maher returns in the half forward line, alongside Seamus Callanan at full forward.
In addition to those three changes, Sean O'Brien and Michael Cahill are named at corner back, while Joe O'Dwyer is handed the number five jersey.
