Limerick manager TJ Ryan will pick his team for Sunday's Munster SHC semi-final based on form and is contemplating bringing in some younger members of the squad.
Ryan has no injury concerns ahead of the trip to Semple Stadium to face Tipperary in the Munster SHC and the manager admits he is tempted to hand out some debuts having been impressed with the performance of players in training.
"Obviously the game is very fast, these younger fellas - some of the guys have been around a long time and you can see from other counties’ experience that pace can be an issue, but the younger guys have that in abundance, they’re confident, they’re putting the pressure on, which is exactly what we want," Ryan explained in the Irish Examiner.
“I know there are fellas out there who’ll be picking teams — that fella should be on, or this fella — but we see these guys night in night out and my opinion is that when the team is announced, I don’t think there’ll be complaints. It’ll be based on the last number of weeks and months, we’ve a lot of training done and the team will be picked on that basis.”
