Cats make three changes

BRIAN Cody has made three changes to his team for tomorrow evening's All-Ireland hurling final replay with Tipperary.

As rumored during the week, Joey Holden, Brian Hogan and Walter Walsh have all lost their starting places with Pádraig Walsh, Kieran Joyce and John Power coming into the side in their stead.

Power makes his first start since the Leinster Final, meaning Henry Shefflin - who saw only five minutes of action three weeks ago - is again held in reserve.

Tipperary, meanwhile, have named the same starting team as the drawn game, with Brendan Maher and Patrick 'Bonner' Maher both proving their fitness for inclusion.

KILKENNY (SH v Tipperary): E Murphy; P Murphy, JJ Delaney, J Tyrrell; P Walsh, K Joyce, C Buckley; R Hogan, C Fogarty; M Fennelly, C Fennelly, E Larkin; R Power, TJ Reid, J Power.

Tipperary: D Gleeson; C Barrett, Pádraic Maher, P Stapleton; B Maher, J Barry, K Bergin; S McGrath, J Woodlock; G Ryan, Patrick Maher, J O'Dwyer, N McGrath, S Callanan, L Corbett.
