Tipp hurlers play Clare

Padraic Maher will captain the Tipperary team in Saturday's All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship quarter-final against Clare at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Seamus Kennedy has been recalled to the Tipperary team for Saturday's All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship quarter-final against Clare at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

The St. Mary's defender is one of three changes to the team that beat Dublin in the All-Ireland qualifier at Semple Stadium a fortnight ago.

Darragh Mooney returns in goal in place of Darren Gleeson, while Noel McGrath comes into the half forward line in place of Jason Forde.

The Eire Og Annacarty/Donohill 'keeper was selected to line out against Dublin but was forced to cry off with a back injury.

Meanwhile, manager Michael Ryan has opted for Noel McGrath's experience in the half forward line.

Saturday's match starts at 3pm and will be shown live on RTE.
