The Tipperary minor hurling team to play Dublin in the Electric Ireland All Ireland minor hurling final replay on Sunday next shows 1 change from the team which started the drawn game. Dylan Fitzell starts instead of Steven O'Brien. The team is:

1. Paul  Maher (Moyne Templetuohy)
2. Ronan Maher (Thurles Sarsfields)
3. Michael Breen (Ballina)
4. Jack Peters (Kilruane MacDonaghs)
5. Tom Fox (Eire Og Annacarty Donohill)
6. Tomás Hamill (Killea)
7. Barry Heffernan (Nenagh Eire Og)
8. Bill Maher (Kilsheelan Kilcash) Captain
9. Stephen Cahill (Thurles Sarsfields)
10. John McGrath (Loughmore Castleiney)
11. Dylan Fitzell (Cashel King Cormacs)
12. Sean Maher (Clonoulty Rossmore)
13. Tadhg Gallagher (Kildangan)
14. Jack Shelly (Mullinahone)
15. Mark McCarthy (Toomevara)

I see the forwards have been switched around again,is that Jack Shelly related to the bustling Paul Shelly of Tipp senior fame.Is the lad from Ballina who played full forward the last day injured or dropped.

There is not the slightest chance that the Tipp forward line will line out in the positions listed.  The numbers on the jerseys of the forwards will bear no relation to the positions that they will play in.  AFAIK Jack Shelly is not related to Paul Shelly.  After all he is only half the size of Paul.  Steven O'Brien is dropped for Dylan Fitzelle and is not injured.  3 of the team - Bill Maher, John McGrath and Fitzelle won Minor All Ireland Football medals last year, as did O'Brien and Colin O'Riordan who are on the bench on Sunday.  Like the Dublin dual players, history beckons for them in this replay.  Good to see so many dual players including Jack Shelley and the Dublin lads involved in the Final.

Finished
Na Tiobraidigh  2-18 Dubh Linn 1-11

Favourites usually win replays when given a second bite, hope Galway can change this for the senior.

Fine display by Tipp, way better than the drawn game.  Dual players Bill Maher, John McGrath, Dylan Fitzelle and Steven O' Brien first Tipp players to win All Ireland Minor Football and Hurling medals, playing in both finals and Colin O'Riordan right half back in the Minor Football Final last year was on the bench today.  Who said you can't be succesful with dual players on the team.  Jack Shelley and Jack Loughnane also won Munster Minor Football this year.
