Team News: Debutant Kieran Morris among four Tipperary changes

Having drawn with Galway last week, the outcome of the game in Thurles will determine whether Tipp have to face the Rebels again in the relegation play-off or if they qualify for the quarter-finals.

In defence, James Barry is picked for the first time since the league opener against Dublin, while Conor O’Brien makes his first start. John O’Dwyer returns in attack while Tomás Hamill, Michael Cahill, Kieran Bergin, and Dan McCormack miss out.

Cork, who are in the relegation play-off regardless of the outcome, have one change from the loss to Kilkenny, with Conor O’Sullivan coming into defence for the injured Damien Cahalane.

Kilkenny, who host Dublin at Nowlan Park, have five changes. Brian Kennedy starts at corner-back in place of Shane Prendergast, while Lester Ryan, who replaced the injured Conor Fogarty early in the Cork game, continues at midfield. James Maher, Jonjo Farrell, and John Power all start in attack, replacing Colin Fennelly, Conor Martin, and Kevin Kelly.
