TEAM NEWS: Cork Team Named for All Ireland Semi Final
Kieran Kingston has revealed his starting fifteen for Cork's All Ireland Hurling Championship Semi Final against Waterford on Sunday.
As expected, there are no changes to the fifteen that started the Munster Final win over Clare five weeks ago.
Luke Meade has recovered from the hand injury that required surgery and ruled him out of the Munster Under 21 Championship campaign.
Colm Spillane, Mark Coleman, Darragh Fitzgibbon, Shane Kingston and Meade are all set to make their first Championship appearances in Croke Park.
In one change to the panel, Michael O'Halloran is in with Robbie O'Flynn dropping out.
Earlier Waterford Management revealed their starting fifteen with Kieran Bennett replacing the suspended Tadhg de Búrca in the Deise defence.
