Kilkenny have made three changes to their side to face Tipperary this Saturday night under the lights in Thurles.
Shane Prendergast returns to the starting lineup for Kilkenny’s Allianz Hurling League Round 4 clash, replacing Kieran Joyce. Liam Blanchfield and Alan Murphy also start up front alongside Walter Walsh. Colin Fennelly, who returned to action against Cork, retains his berth at half forward.
Richie Leahy (injury) and Conor Martin make way, with St. Lachtains’ Darren Brennan coming in on standby for Eoin Murphy.
