CORK HAVE BROUGHT in a scoring star from last weekend’s win against Tipperary from the start for Sunday’s league quarter-final against Limerick.

Darragh Fitzgibbon hit 0-5 after being brought on early in last Sunday’s tie and he’s included from the start for the last eight clash instead of the injured Conor Lehane.
