Canty and Cadogan set to start for Rebels

Graham Canty has been named in the Cork team for Sunday's All-Ireland SFC final against Down at Croke Park (throw-in 3.30pm).

The Rebels captain has recovered sufficiently from the hamstring injury he suffered in the semi-final win over Dublin, and took a full part in training on both Tuesday night and tonight.

It means that the Bantry Blues clubman has won back his place at centre-back for Sunday's showdown with the Mourne men.

It is a major boost for Cork as they aim for their first All-Ireland SFC title since 1990.

Rebels boss Conor Counihan has made one change in personnel to the side that started against Dublin, with dual star Eoin Cadogan replacing John Miskella in the full-back line.

There are also a number of positional switches - Ray Carey moves over to the left corner to make way for Cadogan, with Michael Shields continuing at full-back.

The other positional change is among the forwards. Ciaran Sheehan is now stationed at wing forward and Paul Kerrigan has moved closer to goal.

The likes of Miskella, Nicholas Murphy and Colm O'Neill have to be content with places on the bench.

CORK (SFC v Down): A Quirke; E Cadogan, M Shields, R Carey; N O'Leary, G Canty (capt), P Kissane; A O'Connor, A Walsh; C Sheehan, P O'Neill, P Kelly; D Goulding, D O'Connor, P Kerrigan.
