Cork defender Brian Murphy has recovered from his broken collarbone to take his place in Jimmy Barry-Murphy's starting XV for this weekend's All-Ireland hurling final with Clare.

Murphy replaces veteran Tom Kenny in the only change in the Rebels' lineup from their semi-final win over Dublin.

Murphy was pivotal to Cork's victory over the Banner in their Munster semi-final when he did a man-marking job on Tony Kelly.
