Two-time All-Star midfielder Aidan Walsh has been named in the Cork starting team for tomorrow night's Munster football quarter-final against Waterford at Fraher Field.

The Rebels are expected to be too much for the Deise, with the winners advancing to the Munster semi-final to take on Tipperary. Walsh, who won an All-Ireland with Cork in 2010, is back in the Cork starting team for a championship game for the first time since the 2014 All-Ireland quarter-final loss to Mayo.

Wing-back Kevin Crowley makes his first championship start in the number seven jersey, with Paul Kerrigan captaining the side at corner forward.

The game throws in at 7pm.
