Dublin hurling manager Anthony Daly has decided to field an unchanged team from last weekend’s win against Waterford for the clash against Munster champions, Tipperary, in Semple Stadium, Thurles at 3.45pm on Sunday. Joey Boland and Niall Corcoran who picked up knocks against the Decies have proven their fitness and will start against the Premier County.
