Laois camogie manager John Desmond has made two changes to his team for this weekend’s All-Ireland Intermediate Round 2 clash with Tipperary.

While there are two changes in personnel, there are also a number of positional switches as a result.

Sarah Fleming and Karla Whelan come into the starting 15 with Cathy Galbraith and Liaden C-Fennell dropping to the bench.

Fleming comes into the full back line with Laura Finlay moving up to midfield to partner Jessie Quinlan.

Karla Whelan is in at wing back with Alison McEvoy moving to centre forward and Aimee Collier going to the wing.

Aisling O’Dea and Sara Cuddy have swapped positions with Alice Walsh moving into the full forward line in place of C-Fennell.

Laois suffered defeat to Derry last weekend while Tipperary lost out to Kerry.

With only the top two teams advancing to the quarter finals, Laois must win this game.

It throws in at 5pm in Drom and Inch GAA in Tipperary on Saturday evening.

LAOIS: Aedin Lowry; Sarah Fleming, Roisin Kilmartin, Katie Dunican; Karla Whelan, Clodagh Tynan, Sarah Creagh; Jessie Quinlan, Laura Finlay; Aimee Collier, Alison McEvoy, Aisling O’Dea; Sarah Cuddy, Grainne Hyland, Alice Walsh.

SUBS: Roisin Dowling, Rachel Bergin, Cathy Galbraith, Liaden C-Fennell, Andrea Scully, Grainne O’Reilly, Niamh Coss, Luisne Delaney, Enya Carroll, Ellen Meagher, Meabh Deegan, Jade Bergin, Casey Conroy, Laura Marie Maher, Chloe O’Riordan
