Michael Fennelly has eased Brian Cody's injury concerns somewhat after being named in the Kilkenny team to face Waterford for a place in the All-Ireland Final on Sunday.

Jackie Tyrrell and Richie Power will both miss out, but the return of the marauding Ballyhale Shamrocks man is a huge fillip for the reigning champions.

Tyrrell, sidelined with a stress fracture to his ankle, is replaced by Clara's Shane Prendergast.

Power has yet to feature this season because of a knee injury, while Diarmuid Cody, son of manager Brian, has been handed a call-up to the senior panel for the first time after starring for the Cats’ under 21 side earlier in the season.

Kilkenny team to face Waterford:

Eoin Murphy, Paul Murphy, Joey Holden, Shane Prendergast, Padraig Walsh, Kieran Joyce, Cillian Buckley, Michael Fennelly, Conor Fogarty, Walter Walsh, Richie Hogan, TJ Reid, Ger Aylward, Colin Fennelly, Eoin Larkin.
