Youngster Willie O'Dwyer will make his senior debut for Kilkenny on Sunday alongside Hurler of the Year Henry Shefflin in the half-forward line.

Kilkenny face Clare in a repeat of last year's All-Ireland final and Shefflin has recovered from flu in time to start alongside Mullinavat's O'Dwyer.

Elsewhere, Stephen Grehan gets the nod to start at right half-forward following his successful introduction against Laois last Sunday.

Kilkenny (SH v Clare): J McGarry; M Kavanagh, N Hickey, P Larkin; R Mulally, P Barry, JJ Delaney; D Lyng, T Walsh; S Grehan, H Shefflin, W O'Dwyer; C Carter, M Comerford, E Brennan.
