BERNARD BROGAN has been recalled to the Dublin attack for tomorrow's Leinster SFC final against Meath at Croke Park.

BERNARD BROGAN has been recalled to the Dublin attack for tomorrow's Leinster SFC final against Meath at Croke Park.

And in a second change to his inside line, Jim Gavin has restored Paddy Andrews (left) at full-forward as the Dublin boss plumps for big-game experience against the Royals.

Brogan, the 2010 Footballer of the Year and three-time All Star, has been confined to one truncated appearance in this year's championship before hamstring trouble flared against Laois last month.

He sat out the semi-final against Wexford when Andrews was also an 11th hour withdrawal with a wrist injury.

But now both players have been recalled at the expense of Paul Mannion and Dean Rock while Cormac Costello, despite his stunning 1-5 haul off the bench against Wexford, is again left waiting for his first championship start. Eoghan O'Gara is likewise held in reserve.

Otherwise, Dublin are unchanged which means another half-back appearance for former All Star Kevin Nolan at the expense of Young Footballer of the Year Jack McCaffrey, who starts on the Dublin bench for the third consecutive outing.

DUBLIN (SF v Meath): 
S Cluxton; P McMahon, R O'Carroll, J Cooper; J McCarthy, N Devereux, K Nolan; MD Macauley, C O'Sullivan; P Flynn, A Brogan, D Connolly; K McManamon, P Andrews, B Brogan.
