Laois senior hurling team named for Walsh Cup game against Dublin

Round three of the Walsh Cup is being played this weekend, with Eddie Brennan’s men facing Dublin at home.

Brennan has made a total of five changes to the side that lost out against Carlow.

One notable name missing from the starting lineup is that of Leigh Bergin, while Padraig Delaney and Joe Phelan slip into the full-back line in the absence of Donnacha Hartnett.

The man who helped lead Camross to U-21 victory a few weeks ago, Eoin Gaughan, makes his first competitive start for Laois at senior level.

It’s still all to play for in this Walsh Cup. Dublin go in as favourites having recorded wins over Offaly and Carlow in previous rounds.

However if Laois beat the Dubs they will be equal having won one and lost one game each.

For Saturday’s game, if Offaly see off Carlow it means both teams would have one win and two losses in the pre-season competition.

We will be live blogging all the action from O’Moore Park on Sunday as Laois take on Dublin at 2pm.

LAOIS: Enda Rowland (St Lazerian’s Abbeyleix); Padraig Delaney (The Harps), Matthew Whelan (Borris-Kilcotton), Joe Phelan (Camross); Jack Kelly (Rathdowney-Errill), Ryan Mullaney (Castletown), Eric Killeen (Rathdowney-Errill); Colm Stapleton (Borris-Kilcotton), Paddy Purcell (Rathdowney-Errill); Aaron Dunphy (Borris-Kilcotton), Eanna Lyons (Ballyfin), Stephen Maher (Clough-Ballacolla); Mark Kavanagh (Rathdowney-Errill), PJ Scully (Borris-Kilcotton), Eoin Gaughan (Camross)
