Cork manager Denis Walsh and Tipperary's Liam Sheedy have announced their starting line-ups for this Sunday's Munster derby in Allianz NHL Division 1 at Páirc Uí Chaoímh (throw-in 2.30pm).

Walsh has made a sweeping set of changes to his side from the Rebels outfit which beat Dublin at Parnell Park last weekend.

John Gardiner and Jerry O'Connor impressed as substitutes last time out and have been handed starting berths against the Premier County.

Martin Coleman replaces Donal Óg Cusack between the posts, while there is one other change in personnel in defence.

Brian Murphy comes in from Shane Murphy at left corner back, with Gardiner, Ronan Curran and Seán Óg Ó hAilín completing the Cork half-back line.

Tom Kenny is now partnered by Kanturk's Lorcan McLoughlin in midfield, with Cathal Naughton moving to attack. Naughton slots in at left half-forward with Graham Callinan losing out.

Tadhg Og Murphy is on the right wing instead of Ben O'Connor, while Aisake Ó hAilín gets the nod over Michael Cussen at full-forward.

Tipperary manager Liam Sheedy has made two changes to the side which drew with Waterford last time out.

Michael Cahill of Thurles Sarsfields replaces Shane Maher at left half-back, while captain Eoin Kelly, who has recovered from injury, returns in place of John O'Brien.
