Horgan Returns For Rebels & Galway Name Two Debutants For Trip To Portlaoise

Galway have made a number of changes to the side that were almost stunned by Antrim last weekend as they face into a potential banana skin clash with Laois.

The Midlands county were well beaten by Limerick in round 1 but may take inspiration from the gallant effort of the Glensmen, and the performance of rivals Offaly, who beat Dublin in Croke Park.

Conor Cooney, Joseph Cooney, Conor Whelan and Niall Burke will look to put up a big score as the All-Ireland champions get back into the swing of things.

Sean Linnane at wing forward and Shane Bannon at corner back make their first starts for Micheál Donoghue’s men.

Meanwhile, Cork will look to back up their impressive Páirc Ui Chaoimh win over Kilkenny as they face other Leinster opposition this weekend.

There is no controversy over the goalkeeping position this week as Patrick Collins retains his spot with Anthony Nash not named on the panel for the clash with Wexford.

Back in the Rebel side for the Wexford Park visit is key forward Patrick Horgan.
