Tipperary manager Eamon O'Shea will hand Championship debuts to Kieran Bergin and Jason Forde in Sunday’s Munster SHC semi-final against Limerick at the Gaelic Grounds (4pm).

Bergin, who starts at wing-back, made his senior debut in the Allianz League final defeat to Kilkenny last month.

Forde starts in the forward ranks.

As anticipated, Lar Corbett misses out as he continues to recover from the fractured ribs he sustained against Kilkenny.

One Premier County stalwart who has made the team is Brendan Cummins, who has been favoured to Darren Gleeson.

Cummins will be embarking on his 19th Championship campaign.

Tipperary: B Cummins, P Stapleton, P Curran, M Cahill, K Bergin, C O’Mahony, P Maher, B Maher, S McGrath; J Forde, P Maher, J O’Brien; S Bourke, S Callanan, N McGrath.
