Already assured of a place in the Munster SHC final, Clare manager Brian Lohan has made six changes to his team for their last round-robin game against Waterford in Ennis tomorrow (throw-in 4pm).

Influential pair John Conlon and Tony Kelly have been left out of the side, while Paul Flanagan, Diarmuid Ryan, Jason McCarthy and Robin Mounsey also make away following the 0-24 to 1-21 draw with final opponents Limerick.

Cian Nolan, Jack Browne, Aaron Fitzgerald, Shane Golden, David Reidy and Ian Galvin earn starting places as the Banner County have one eye on the provincial decider on June 5.

Meanwhile, All-Star full-back and captain Conor Prunty is a notable absentee from the Waterford line-up.

The Deise need to win at Cusack Park to have any chance of progressing to the All-Ireland series.
