Richie Hogan omitted from Kilkenny squad due to injury, Senan Kilbride is back for Rossies
2014 Hurler of the Year Richie Hogan has failed to recover in time to take his place in the Kilkenny squad for their Leinster semi-final clash with Dublin on Sunday evening.
Hogan sustained a broken bone in his hand whilst on club duty for Danesfort against Ballyhale Shamrocks last month and some reports had suggested that he would return but they were wide of the mark.

Brian Cody can still name 11 of the side that started last September's All-Ireland final triumph.
Senan Kilbride starts for Roscommon against Sligo in their Connacht semi-final and only six players who started the game against the same opposition in 2015 survive.
