Croke Park the venue.

Laois and Tipperary hurlers will not be donning their traditional colours when they run out onto Croke Park next Sunday.

The teams will not be wearing their predominantly blue coloured jerseys.

The colour clash will see Laois wearing all white while Tipperary will wear highly unusually charcoal grey colours.
