Laois hurlers unchanged for relegation playoff

Laois will be hoping to make it fourth time lucky on Saturday evening against Kerry
Laois will be hoping to make it fourth time lucky on Saturday evening against Kerry

Laois manager Eamonn Kelly has selected the same 15 who narrowly went down to Wexford last week for their relegation playoff tomorrow night.

After such a fine performance last week, the big call that Kelly had to make was who would wear the number 1 jersey.

Both Enda Rowland and Eoin Fleming have rotated in the position so far this season but it seems that the Borris-Kilcotton man has got the nod in this crunch clash.

It is also hoped that the injured trio of Stephen Maher, Matthew Whelan and Podge Lawlor could be fit enough to take places on the bench at the very least.

Laois face Kerry in Portlaoise on Saturday night at 7pm looking to end a three game losing streak against the Kingdom and we will be there to Live Blog events as they happen.

LAOIS TEAM IN FULL:
1. Eoin Fleming (Borris-in-Ossory-Kilcotton)
2. Lee Cleere (Clough Ballacolla)
3. Leigh Bergin (Shanahoe)
4. Dwane Palmer (Camross)
5. Cahir Healy (Portlaoise)
6. Ryan Mullaney (Castletown)
7. Sean Downey (Ballinakill)
