Kilkenny and Cork reveal their All Ireland semi-final sides

Share this article

Kilkenny manager Brian Cody has made three changes to his starting XV for Sunday's All Ireland hurling semi-final with Cork.

One of those is enforced, with Conor Browne failing to shake off a leg injury and his place at left wing-back going to Michael Carey from Young Irelands.

Otherwise, the defence is the same one that started last month's Leinster final win over Dublin.

Into midfield comes Conor Fogarty, with Richie Leahy missing out on the matchday 26.

The final of Cody's alterations is in the half-forward line, and sees Alan Murphy - scorer of 0-2 off the bench last time - replace Martin Keoghan.

Meanwhile, Kieran Kingston has made just one change to his Cork side.

Shane Barrett starts at corner-forward, with Shane Kingston dropping to the bench.

Those subs are boosted by the returns of Damien Cahalane and Eoin Cadogan.
