Hurling Team News- Dublin And Offaly Both Make Changes

Dublin

Both the Dublin and Offaly teams have been announced ahead of this weekends do-or-die qualifier games.

Ger Cunnigham has made three changes to the Dublin side as he brings the Boys in Blue down his native Cork. Both sides have everything to lose in this game and Cunningham had wielded the axe as he attempts to heap more misery on the Rebels.

Gary Maguire returns in goal as the Dubs look to experience while Mark Schutte and Paul Ryan both come into the full-forward line. Conor Dooley, Daniel O’Connell and David O’Callaghan are the players to make way.
