A third of the Cork side for tomorrow’s Munster SHC quarter-final with All-Ireland champions Tipperary (4pm) will be making their first championship starts.

Corner-back Colm Spillane, wing-back Mark Coleman, midfielder Darragh Fitzgibbon, wing-forward Shane Kingston and corner-forward Luke Meade are all making their full debuts, with Kingston and Coleman having come off the bench in the All-Ireland qualifier defeat to Wexford last July.

In total, nine of the Rebel side which started the 0-22 to 0-13 loss to Tipp a year ago are selected, with 14 of the Tipp team from that day – John O’Keeffe is the only one who didn’t start that day.

O’Keeffe is also one of two changes from last year’s All-Ireland final, with wing-forward Seán Curran. Patrick Maher isn’t fit enough to start while Michael Cahill has a hamstring injury.
