Tipperary senior hurling manager Eamon O'Shea has held confidence in the same starting XV that beat Dublin in the quarter-finals.

While Paddy Stapleton retains his place despite recovering from an injury, Martin Cahill must be content to sit on the sidelines in the game against Cork.

Meanwhile, Cork manager Jimmy Barry Murphy also announces an unchanged team for this weekend's semi-final clash with Limerick.

Captain Pa Cronin had been the only injury concern for the Rebels but he has recovered from a fractured fibula sustained in the win over Limerick five weeks ago.

Tipperary team: Darren Gleeson, Cathal Barrett, Paudie Maher, Paddy Stapleton, Brendan Maher, James Barry, Kieran Bergin, Shane McGrath, James Woodlock, Gearóid Ryan, Patrick Maher, John O’Dwyer, Noel McGrath, Seamus Callanan, Lar Corbett

Cork team: Anthony Nash, Shane O'Neill, Damien Cahalane, Stephen McDonnell, Christopher Joyce, Mark Ellis, Lorcan McLoughlin. Daniel Kearney, Aidan Walsh, Conor Lehane, Bill Cooper, Seamus Harnedy, Alan Cadogan, Patrick Cronin, Patrick Horgan.
