Galway hurlers have made nine changes to the team to play Waterford in the Allianz National Hurling League this Sunday.
Joe Canning returns to the side at full forward, Barry Daly makes his debut for the Tribesmen with four players starting their first game of the 2011 campaign.
Kilkenny and Galway are the only two who have their fate in their own hands. If they both win, they reach the final as Kilkenny would be on 11 points with Galway on ten points. Dublin could also reach ten points but would lose out to Galway on the head-to-head rule. If Kilkenny and/or Galway lose and Dublin win, it would mean a first League final appearance for Dublin since 1946.
Galway (v Waterford): J Grealish, D Joyce, S Kavanagh, D Collins, D Burke, T Og Regan, A Cullinane, B Daly, J Coen, K Hynes Iarla Tannian, A Callanan, D Hayes, J Canning, E Forde
