Same again for Waterford for semi-final with Kilkenny


Share this article


Waterford manager Liam Cahill has avoided tinkering with a winning formula. 

He's named an unchanged side for Saturday's All Ireland hurling semi-final with Kilkenny at Croke Park.

There is, however, one alteration to the bench with Billy Power getting the nod ahead of Ciaran Kirwan.

For their part, Kilkenny have made three changes for the game at Croke Park. Paddy Deegan, Richie Hogan and Billy Ryan come in for Richie Leahy, Walter Walsh and Colin Fennelly.

The sides met in a challenge match prior to their respective provincial championships, with Cahill telling WLR FM, "It was one of our first matches back.

"We were blowing off the cobwebs really.

"That day Kilkenny didn’t have a lot of their bigger guns, TJ Reid, Colin Fennelly and these guys were just after winning a county final with Ballyhale.

"It gave us a great starting point but I wouldn’t be reading a whole lot into it. Kilkenny won the match but both teams have had a lot of outings since and there’s a lot of water under the bridge since that day in September.”

1. Stephen O'Keefe (Ballygunner)
