John Kiely makes two changes for Tipp with Hegarty and Casey in from the start

Limerick know a pair of wins from their final two games will see them into a fifth successive Munster final.

Limerick manager John Kiely has made two changes to his side for the do or die third round Munster Senior Hurling clash against Tipperary this Sunday in Thurles.

Into the starting XV come Gearoid Hegarty and Mike Casey with Cathal O’Neill and Sean Finn dropping out. Finn suffered an ACL injury against Clare and will miss the remainder of the season. O’Neill moves to the bench after starting against the Banner.

Casey is the only difference from the side that started the 2021 final with Cork.

U20 duo Shane O’Brien and Adam English move to the replacements with neither featuring so far due to their commitments with Diarmuid Mullins side as they fell in the provincial stages.

Tipperary have also named their team with a number of changes to the xv that drew with Cork in round four. A win for the Premier will ensure them of progression to the knockout stages, while a win for them and a victory for Cork would see Limerick eliminated.

Limerick know a pair of wins from their final pair of games will see them into a fifth successive Munster final. Throw in this Sunday is 4pm in Semple Stadium with the game also live on RTÉ.
