Cork have opted not to include full-forward Michael Cussen in their starting 15 for Sunday's Munster HC quarter-final against Tipperary in Thurles, writes Colm Keys.
Cussen has been kept in reserve, with Paudie O'Sullivan claiming the No 14 shirt.
In a new-look team, Jerry O'Connor, Cathal Naughton and Tom Kenny must all be satisfied with places on the bench as Cian McCarthy, Lorcan McLoughlin and Luke O'Farrell start. William Egan starts at centre-back in place of the injured Ronan Curran, with Brian Murphy at left half-back. Stephen McDonnell will make his championship debut at corner-back.
Cork -- D Og Cusack; S McDonnell, E Cadogan, S O'Neill; J Gardiner, W Egan, B Murphy; L McLoughlin, P Cronin; B O'Connor, C McCarthy, N McCarthy; P Horgan, P O'Sullivan, L O'Farrell.
