KILKENNY will be without injured star corner-back Paul Murphy for tomorrow's Leinster SHC semi-final replay against Dublin, but Jackie Tyrrell has recovered in time to start.

Conor Fogarty, who deputised for Tyrrell last week, switches corners to cover for Murphy's absence in the full-back line. Grabbing a last-minute equaliser off the bench last week has earned TJ Reid a recall and Aidan Fogarty also returns to the attack.

Meanwhile, both of the O'Flaherty brothers will start for Kildare against Dublin in Sunday's Leinster SFC semi-final at Croke Park. Morgan will join Eoghan as he comes in for the injured Ollie Lyons in a reshuffled defence.

Tyrone's footballers will be without Stephen O'Neill (Achilles) and both of the McMahon brothers for tomorrow's qualifer against Offaly.

Galway have made six changes from the side trounced by Mayo for their qualifier against Tipperary. Finian Hanley, Gary O'Donnell, Mark Hehir, Greg Higgins and half-forward debutants John O'Brien (Clifden) and Michael Farragher (Corofin) all come in while Fiontain O'Curraoin, Thomas Flynn, Gary Sweeney, Niall Coleman and Gareth Bradshaw drop out.

Wexford's Lee Chin intends doubling up again this weekend, lining out in defence for their footballers in Sunday's Leinster SFC semi-final against Meath and also at wing-forward in tomorrow's hurling qualifier against Carlow.
