Both Michael Ryan and Micheal Donoghue have made changes ahead of Sunday’s clash.
There are two changes to the Tipperary side while Galway make just one alteration.
After heavy criticism was directed towards Tipperary’s defence following their victory over Clare, it’s not surprising that both changes come in this sector of the field.
Darren Gleeson returns to the side once again in place of Darragh Mooney, while Michael Cahill takes a starting jersey ahead of Tomás Hamill.
James Barry has also been restored to the full-back position in which he seems more comfortable.
Despite many believing this to be Tipperary’s strongest option for 1-4, questions will still loom over the last line of the Premier’s defence.
The majestic full-forward line trio of John O’Dwyer, Seamus Callanan and John McGrath unsurprisingly remains unchanged.
Despite the fitness of Joe O’Dwyer, Seamus Kennedy once again keeps the number five jersey.
Now that the team has been named, Tipperary supporters will be hopeful that the recent upward curve of form will continue.
Leinster champions Galway, however, make just one change. As expected, Cathal Mannion returns to the side with Jason Flynn losing out.
The Tribesmen’s defence is unchanged with the same sextet taking to the field as the one which featured in the Leinster final triumph over Wexford.
If Tipperary’s full-forward line has been impressive, then Galway’s has not been far behind. Both Conor Cooney and Conor Whelan have been on fire this summer.
These hurling giants are deadlocked at one apiece over the past two seasons and Sunday looks set to be a thriller.
