Tipperary manager Michael Ryan has named an unchanged starting line-up for Sunday’s All-Ireland SHC semi-final against Galway in Croke Park.
Ryan has named the same side that crushed Waterford 5-19 to 0-13 in the Munster final on 10 July, so there is no place for John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer.
Tipp's Ronan Maher expects his side to take the five-week gap between the Munster final and the All-Ireland semi-final in their stride.
"I don't think that is an excuse, there are a lot of training matches going on inside, you'd be used to it," he said.
"The five weeks flies, it is a huge game obviously so we will be just concentrating on getting a performance ourselves. We will bring huge heart and hunger after last year."
Galway boss Michael O’Donoghue has also named an unchanged side for the semi-final clash, which has a 15.30 throw-in on Sunday.
The Tribesmen progressed to the last four by beating Clare 2-17 to 0-17 in the quarter-final on 24 July.
"The bar is raised again now because it's a semi-final," O’Donoghue said.
"We knew ourselves after the Clare game the areas we needed to improve on and obviously they were our working areas for the last couple of weeks.
"The lads have worked hard now, we know ourselves we have to work harder and improve on the Clare game."
