Kilkenny have dropped their captain for Sunday's All-Ireland Hurling
Semi-Final against Galway at Croke Park.
Centre-forward and skipper Denis Byrne has been sensationally axed after
displaying indifferent form throughout the Leinster Championship.
Byrne's spot goes to Stephen Grehan, who is slotted in at left-half
forward, with John Power returning to centre-forward.
Power comes in for Canice Brennan, while All-Star defender Peter Barry
after returns after recovering from a broken finger, with Sean Dowling
retiring to the bench.
In one further move, the Cats bring Brian McEvoy into midfield.
KILKENNY - J McGarry; M Kavanagh, N Hickey, JJ Delaney; P Larkin, E
Kennedy, P Barry; A Comerford, B McEvoy; J Hoyne, J Power, S Grehan; C
Carter, DJ Carey, H Shefflin.
