Brian Cody springs another surprise in the forwards as Kilkenny make two changes for All-Ireland final clash with Tipperary
Published 02/09/2016 | 20:30
Kilkenny have made two changes for Sunday's All-Ireland final against Tipperary with Mark Bergin and Michael Fennelly dropping out in place of Kevin Kelly and Kieran Joyce.
Fennelly ruptured his achilles in the semi-final replay win over Waterford, ruling him out of this weekend's game. The three-time All Star is replaced in the side by Joyce, who started the Cats' final wins in 2012, 2014 and 2015.
Kelly is named in place of Bergin, who started against the Deise in Thurles despite not being named in the team, at corner forward.
The throw-in is fixed for 3.30pm on Sunday.
