DUBLIN manager Joe Fortune has announced a relatively experienced team ahead of his side's Bord Gáis Energy Leinster U21Hc quarter-final against Kilkenny in Parnell Park tomorrow night (7.30), writes Rónán Mac Lochlainn.

It will be a busy week for some of Dublin's U21 hurlers who also feature in Ger Cunningham's senior panel.

Cian O'Callaghan will captain the Dubs from corner-back with his Cuala club-mate Jake Malone selected at centrefield after showing fine form at training in recent weeks.

Dublin's attack looks strong with the inclusion of Paul Winters and Colm Cronin while Oisín O'Rorke and AJ Murphy possess a goal threat that could prove crucial against a talented Kilkenny side.

DUBLIN (U21HC v Kilkenny): S Brennan; C O'Callaghan, C Mac Gabhann, J Madden; S Barrett, E O'Donnell, S McClelland; C Boland, J Malone; P Winters, S Treacy, AJ Murphy; F McGibb, C Cronin, O O'Rorke.
