Eoin Rigney’s performances for the U-21s have earned him a call up to replace fellow Rhode clubman Shane Sullivan who misses the game through suspension.

Derek Kelly, Anton Sullivan, Graham Guilfoyle and Bernard Allen also return to the starting line up.

In positional switches Nigel Dunne moves back to full forward, James Keane back to wing half back and captain Brian Darby will play at right corner back with Peter Boland in the other corner.
