Cork make one change as Clare name same team for All-Ireland hurling final
First all-Munster decider since 1997 promises to be a classic
Jimmy Barry Murphy and Davy Fitzgerald have revealed their hands – the stage is set for the 2013 All-Ireland senior hurling final.
Cork boss JBM has recalled fit-again Brian Murphy to his starting team for the Croke Park showdown on Sunday.
And Clare boss Davy Fitz has kept the faith with the team which started the semi-final win over Limerick.
Bride Rovers defender Murphy comes back into the Cork team after dislocating a shoulder on club duty in July.
He returns at the expense of Tom Kenny who started the semi-final win over Dublin but was substituted in that game.
Conor Lehane switches to wing forward on the Cork team in a switch with Jamie Coughlan who is named to start in the corner.
The Clare team is unchanged after forward John Conlon passed a fitness test on the shoulder injury picked up in the semi-final win over Limerick.
The match is the first all-Munster All-Ireland final since 1997 when Clare, with Fitzgerald in goal, beat Tipperary.
CORK v Clare: A Nash; S McDonnell, S O’Neill, C O’Sullivan; B Murphy, C Joyce, W Egan; D Kearney, L McLoughlin; S Harnedy, P Cronin, C Lehane; L O’Farrell, P Horgan, J Coughlan
