Shane Stapleton gives his thoughts on the teams named for the All-Ireland final clash of Limerick v Waterford.

Liam Cahill has made one change to the Waterford team for the All-Ireland final clash with Limerick.

Neil Montgomery, who has been used as a substitute thus far, has been named in the starting XV ahead of Jake Dillon.

With Kieran Bennett rezoned to midfield in place of the latter, who was substituted midway through the first half against Kilkenny, Montgomery will line out at centre-forward.

Shane Fives, who missed the semi-final win due to a quad injury, has returned to the match-day panel but Ian Kenny retains his place at corner-back.

For their part, Limerick have named an unchanged side from their three-point win over Galway in the final-four.

Aaron Gillane, who had missed a certain amount of training in the aftermath of that win after suffering a heavy hit challenging Gearóid McInerney, has won his fitness battle.

LIMERICK: N Quaid (Effin); S Finn (Bruff), D Morrissey (Ahane), B Nash (South Liberties); D Byrnes (Patrickswell), D Hannon (captain, Adare), K Hayes (Kildimo-Pallaskenry); W O’Donoghue (Na Piarsaigh), D O’Donovan (Doon); G Hegarty (South Liberties), C Lynch (Patrickswell), T Morrissey (Ahane); A Gillane (Patrickwell), S Flanagan (Feohanagh-Castlemahon), G Mulcahy (Kilmallock).
