UCC star Ronan Conway has been forced out of the Cork side to face Clare at Pairc Ui Rinn this Sunday due to injury.

UCC star Ronan Conway has been forced out of the Cork side to face Clare at Pairc Ui Rinn this Sunday due to injury.

Conway, an Under-21 last season, picked up a knock in a colleges game on Monday and his withdrawal is the only change to the side originally selected to take on Wexford last weekend.

That game was called off due to a waterlogged pitch at Wexford Park, with the re-fixed date worryingly yet to be confirmed.

Conway's place at left half-forward goes to 2004 All-Star Niall McCarthy.

Last year's All-Ireland winning skipper Sean Og O hAilpin remains sidelined, while Pat Mulcahy, and Ben and Jerry O'Connor are still absent from the line-up after Newtownshandrum's All-Ireland Club final defeat.

Sunday's NHL Division 1A clash is a repeat of last summer's All-Ireland SHC semi-final which the Rebels won by 0-16 to 0-15.

CORK (NHL v Clare) - D Og Cusack; W Sherlock, D O’Sullivan, B Murphy; R Curran, J Gardiner, C O’Connor; T Kenny, K Murphy (Erins Own); T McCarthy, C McGann, N McCarthy; J Deane, B Corcoran, K Murphy (Sarsfields).
