Championship debut for Waterford’s Jason Ryan

Waterford have given a Munster Senior Foootball C’ship debut to corner-forward Jason Ryan for Sunday`s first-round game against Kerry at Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney. Injuries, however, rule out two of the county`s best players, Karl O`Keeffe and Liam Ó Lionain, although both are named among the substitutes. Returning to the team after a lengthy absence is Ger Power, who had given his allegiance to the county hurlers throughout the league campaign.
