The Kilkenny U20 hurling team to face Wexford in Carlow tonight has been named.
As expected, Dicksboro’s Harry Shine misses out through injury and will play no part in tonight’s Leinster final, Ted Dunne assuming Shine’s spot at corner forward.
Billy Reid also makes way from Kilkenny’s back line with Padraig Lennon of Carrickshock set to start at cornerback. Dicksboro’s Padraic Moylan again captains the side.
