Down unchanged for Royal rumble

By Shaun Casey

Conor Laverty has named the same starting 15 for tomorrow’s Tailteann Cup final from the side that hammered Laois in the semi-final.

Hattrick hero from that day, Liam Kerr starts at centre half forward while Down top scorer Pat Havern is once again the target man on the edge of the square.

U20 Ulster champions Patrick McCarthy and Odhran Murdock retain their places, at corner back and midfield respectively.

Murdock netted against Meath in the group stages and claimed another in Croke Park the last day out.

Havern also found the net while attack-minded wing half back Danny Magill raised two green flags in the 8-16 to 2-12 victory.

Down Team: Niall Kane, Patrick McCarthy, Pierce Laverty, Anthony Doherty, Miceal Rooney, Ceilum Doherty, Danny Magill, Daniel Guinness, Odhran Murdock, Shealan Johnston, Liam Kerr, Rory Mason, Eugene Branagan, Pat Havern, Ryan Johnston.
