Murphy replaces John Browne at right corner-back in the first of two changes to the side that trounced Limerick in last weekend's opening round.

Sarsfields club man Kieran Murphy comes in at right corner-forward, with Jonathan O'Callaghan moving to the half-forward line to cover for Ben O'Connor, who is having surgery on a knee injury this week.

CORK (SH v Wexford): D Og Cusack; B Murphy, D O'Sullivan, P Mulcahy; G Callinan, R Curran, S Og O hAilpín; T Kenny, J O'Connor; J O'Callaghan, N McCarthy, T McCarthy; K Murphy, N Ronan, J Deane.
