Phelan and Walsh come in for Waterford

THE Cork senior hurling selectors have named the same starting 15 that took the field against Waterford in last weekend’s thrilling All-Ireland SHC quarter-final at Croke Park for Sunday’s replay at Headquarters.

But their opponents have made two changes in personnel from the drawn game.

Into the defence at left full back comes De La Sale clubman Brian Phelan, while Shane Walsh will have his first championship start as midfield partner to his namesake and team captain Michael “Brick’’ Walsh.

Out go Tallow’s James Murray who began the drawn game at left half back, and Ballyduff Lower’s Jack Kennedy who lined out at midfield.

In a reshuffled attack Stephen Molumphy moves from left to right half forward in a direct switch with Eoin Kelly, while Seamas Prendergast and Dan Shanahan also swop places.

Shanahan began last Sunday’s game on the “40’’ with Prendergast on the fringe of the square, now their roles are reversed in what is the only other change in the sector.

All the panel reported fully fit when training concluded last night.

Ken McGrath has recovered from a slight knock picked up last Sunday.

On the Cork side speculation was rife that Niall McCarthy would take over the centre half forward position after being introduced as a second half replacement for Timmy McCarthy.

However, the Castlelyons player has been given the nod over the Carrigtwohill warrior, who has been struggling with an injury problem.

Wexford have made one change from the side that shocked d Tipperary for their All-Ireland SHC semi final clash with Leinster rivals Kilkenny at Croke Park on Sunday. Doc O’Connor replaces Stephen Nolan on the left flank of attack.

Tyrone skipper Brian Dooher was last night given the green light to face Meath in Saturday’s All-Ireland SFC quarter-final at Croke Park. Dooher, the only Red Hand survivor from the last championship meeting between the counties in 1996, had been a major doubt due to a groin problem.

Manager Mickey Harte has performed surgery on his full-back line, with only Ryan McMenamin remaining from the team that defeated Monaghan in the Ulster final.

Joe McMahon moves from midfield to replace Ciaran Gourley at full-back, while Damien McCaul comes in for his first championship start in place of Dermot Carlin in the left corner.

Kevin Hughes, who started at full forward in the provincial decider, resumes his midfield partnership with Sean Cavanagh.

The reshuffle sees Gerard Cavlan switch from wing forward to full forward, with Ryan Mellon recalled at left half forward.

Stephen O’Neill is kept out of the starting 15 by a knee tendonitis problem, but is likely to make an appearance at some stage.

With inspirational midfielder Eamon O’Hara passed fit to play Sligo have named the same team that won the Connacht title after a lapse of 32-years for next Saturday’s All-Ireland SFC quarter final tilt with Cork at Croke Park.
