Intrigue Surrounds Laois' First Game Back Under Cheddar Plunkett

David Dooley will make his senior hurling debut.

Laois will be shadow boxing with Wexford on Sunday ahead of their Leinster Championship meeting. 

The O'Moore county haven't beaten a top tier hurling team in the league for a decade and will need one win from the round robin to avoid a relegation playoff. 

It's Cheddar Plunkett's first game back in charge of the O'Moore county and there's a palpable sense of intrigue within the county as to what can be expected in the wake of Eddie Brennan's successes. 

There's been a surprise in his team selection too, David Dooley will start for Laois having not played a minute of senior club hurling. 

Following in the footsteps of Seamus Dooley who did the same 30 years ago. 

Live commentary of that one from Wexford Park here on Midlands103 from 1:45 on Sunday.
