Mayo senior hurling manager Derek Walsh has made two changes to his team ahead of their Round 3 Christy Ring Championship match against London tomorrow in McGovern Park in Ruislip. 

The McManus brothers Ger and Joe return to the team after missing last weekend and replace Danny Hill and Conal Hession, respectively.

Gary Nolan switches back to corner-back with Stephen Coyne at full-back and Paul Kirwan in the other corner. 

The dependable Bobby Douglas continues in goal.

Keith Higgins is named at midfield after impressing there in Mayo's victory over Wicklow last weekend and he is now partnered by Daniel Huane. 

Upfront, Joe McManus replaces Conal Hession and leads the attack from the edge of the square with captain Shane Boland and Adrian Phillips in the corners. 

The proficient Joe Mooney is named at centre-forward with Sean Kenny and Eoin Delaney on the wings.
