Having made a second-half cameo appearance against Westmeath, Shamrocks’ TJ Reid returns to the Kilkenny team this Saturday to take on Laois.
Conor Browne starts in place of David Blanchfield at left half-back while James Maher replaces Cian Kenny in midfield alongside Adrian Mullen with Brian Cody shuffling at least some of the deck for this weekend’s second-round Leinster senior hurling championship clash at UPMC Nowlan Park.
Starting at left half-forward against Westmeath, Eoin Cody jumps to corner forward with John Donnelly set for a start at number 12 while TJ Reid replaces Mossy Keoghan in the full-forward line with Glenmore’s Alan Murphy dropping to the bench.
We’ll have full commentary and analysis of the game on-air and online this Saturday beginning with a 5.30pm throw-in.
