Delaney back as Cats ring changes for Galway clash

Kilkenny's hurlers make four changes for their Leinster final re-match with Galway.

JJ Delaney returns, Colin McGrath gets a debut in goal and Conor Fogarty replaces Noel Hickey in their reshuffled defence. PJ Delaney replaces Michael Rice in midfield and Eoin Guinan replaces 'Cha Fitzpatrick upfront.

Meanwhile, Tom O'Sullivan and Declan O'Sullivan have been named on the Kerry bench for tomorrow's home league game against Galway in Killarney.

This duo -- plus Paul Galvin -- only returned to training last weekend, but look set to be fast-tracked back into action, though Galvin is still not ready to play. With Marc O Se suspended, the Kingdom start a new-look full-back line of Shane Enright (Tarbert), Killian Young and Adrian O'Connell.

Dublin's footballers have made four changes for the trip to Monaghan, giving Ross O'Carroll and Darren Daly their first league starts this year in place of Mick Fitzsimons and Alan Hubbard. Ger Brennan starts at centre-back in place of injured James McCarthy and Michael Darragh Macauley comes in for suspended Eoghan O'Gara in attack.
