The Laois senior hurling team has been announced for this weekend’s game.
All four adult Laois GAA teams are in action this weekend and Eddie Brennan’s charges are up first.
The hurlers are in action as they play Clare on Saturday in Nowlan Park at 1.15pm.
That is in an All-Ireland Qualifier game and if they lose, they will be out.
If they win, they will advance to Round 2 alongside Tipperary, Wexford and the winners of Dublin v Cork.
Laois lost heavily to Dublin in their Leinster quarter final two weeks ago and have been forced into two changes.
Ronan Broderick (knee) and James Ryan (thumb) both suffered injuries in that defeat and are out.
They have been replaced by Jack Kelly and Mark Kavanagh.
LAOIS: Enda Rowland; Lee Cleere, Sean Downey, Donnacha Hartnett; Jack Kelly, Podge Delaney, Ryan Mullaney; Fiachra C-Fennell, Paddy Purcell; Aaron Dunphy, Willie Dunphy, James Keyes; Mark Kavanagh, Ross King, Stephen Maher.
Laois will take on Clare on Saturday November 7 in Nowlan Park at 1.15pm.
Supporters will not be permitted to attend but we will Live Blog the game as always.
