Tipperary Senior Hurlers’ dress rehearsal for their championship opener with Limerick takes place this evening.

The Treaty men travel to Semple Stadium for a 7pm throw in in the semi final of the National Hurling League.

Michael Ryan has made three changes for the clash – Kiladangan’s Willie Connors, who was introduced as a sub last week is handed a starting debut.

Daragh Mooney of Éire Óg Annacarty-Donohill takes up the position between the posts and Moyne-Templetuohy’s Tomás Hamill comes into the half-back line for the clash under lights at Semple Stadium

With the two counties close neighbours – old rivalry is certainly to the fore of the clash.

Tipp hurler Michael Breen says they’re focussing on themselves…

Throw in is at 7 and Tipp FM’s full live coverage comes in association with Sullivan Family Butchers Brooklands, Nenagh and the Husqvarna Centre @ Arrabawn, Tyone Mill, Nenagh
