New Cats primed to flourish

Team news

LIAM DUNNE has made two changes to his team for Sunday's Leinster SHC semi-final with Kilkenny in Nowlan Park.

Ciarán Kenny and Shane Tompkins are both elevated from their bench roles in the previous round during Wexford's victory over Westmeath, to starting spots.

Kenny replaces Harry Kehoe in a straight swap while Tompkins comes in at midfield, with Jack Guiney the player to make way.

Guiney was dropped from the Wexford panel by Dunne last week for a breach of discipline.

The Rathnure man hit 4-5 in a League match against Ferns St Aidan's last night but now looks set to spend the rest of the year in the inter-county wilderness.
