Murphy gets the nod from JBM as Cork team named

Cork hurling manager Jimmy Barry Murphy has named his team to face Clare in the All-Ireland hurling final on Sunday, with Brian Murphy the only change from the team that beat Dublin.

Murphy returns from injury to take up the wing-back position, with Tom Kenny making way.

Murphy hasn’t featured for Cork since the Munster semi-final triumph over Sunday’s opponents after sustaining a shoulder injury with Bride Rovers.

After doing a top class marking job on Clare dangerman Tony Kelly in that game, he missed the Munster final defeat against Limerick and the thrilling win over Kilkenny in the All-Ireland qualifiers.

However, after featuring for his club in the Cork SHC against Midleton he was named on the bench for the semi-final and he has now got the nod for Sunday's finale.

1. Anthony Nash (Kanturk)

2. Stephen Mc Donnell (Glen Rovers)
