While he was giving away none of the secrets on KCLR Live this morning, Brian Cody has named his Kilkenny side to face Dublin in the last of the regular league fixtures of the Allianz National Hurling League.
With three wins apiece in the league, both sides have already booked their places in the quarter finals, Sunday ultimately deciding who will top the table in Division 1A while determining who will be the Cats opponents in the knockout stages.
Conor Fogarty was unavailable for selection following the injury he picked up against Cork and beyond him, there are four other changes. Captain Shane Prendergast drops to the bench with Brian Kennedy slotting in at cornerback while Colin Fennelly sits out the fixture. Here’s the team in full as announced this evening.
