Cluxton Out As Special Rule Allows Dublin To Make Late Change

Cluxton Out As Special Rule Allows Dublin To Make Late Change

Highly-suspected that he would miss out on Dublin's Leinster Final clash with Laois this afternoon in Croke Park, Stephen Cluxton was nevertheless named as a member of the starting XV in the build-up.

With only a few minutes to go until the final kicks off, it does appear however that Cluxton will play no part; Johnny Cooper leading the side out into Croke Park for the pre-match warm up.

Dublin GAA's Twitter account has since clarified that Evan Comerford will start in goal for Jim Gavin's side.

In making such a late change to their starting XV, Dublin have taken advantage of a rule available to teams when it comes to fielding goalkeepers.
