Mayo host Donegal at Swinford Amenity Park (2.30pm), with Mayo boss Peter Leahy without the Kelly sisters, Niamh and Grace, and Sarah Rowe in attack, with all three in Australia.

TG4 All Star Rachel Kearns, who was brilliant for CL MacHale Rovers in the All-Ireland Junior Club Final before Christmas, will lead the Mayo attack from the full-forward line.

The Mayo team in full is:

Laura Brennan; Noirin Moran, Danielle Caldwell, Ciara McManamon; Kathryn Sullivan, Clodagh McManamon, Ciara Whyte; Alannah Duffy, Sinead Cafferky; Maria Cannon, Lisa Cafferky, Marie Reilly; Fiona Doherty, Rachel Kearns, Natasha Gaughan.

A youthful Donegal side make the trip to Swinford with Emer Gallagher and Deirdre Foley providing experience in defence, while ace attacker Geraldine McLaughlin is listed at centre half forward.
