Laois face Wicklow this Monday in the All-Ireland Leinster Football Championship opener and make one change in their line-up to the one which lost to Kerry last Sunday. Damien Ryan will come in at corner-back in place of Padraig Leonard. There is also a vacancy left at right half-back in the hope that Joe Higgins proves his fitness in time.

Laois (SFC v Wicklow) F. Byron, D. Ryan, T. Kelly, P. McDonald, D. Conroy, K. Fitzpatrick, AN Other, N. Gavin, P. Clancy, I. Fitzgerald, D. McEvoy, M. Lawlor, B. McDonald, G. Ramsbottom, C. Conway.
