An unchanged Clare team from that which started in Cork last week has been named to face Waterford in round 2 of the Munster senior hurling championship at Cusack Park on Sunday.
As was the case in the lead up to the Cork game, there has been much speculation that there will be some changes and while this may stil prove to be the case, the team named on this Friday evening is the same as that which was named seven days ago.
Positional changes occurred before the throw in last week and the same is expected on Sunday. Conor Cleary will play at centre back with David McInerney in the full back line
Having tasted defeat last week in Pairc Ui Caoimh, Clare need to win this week to bolster their chances of getting to the knock out stage of the competition
