CORK SENIOR HURLING manager Kieran Kingston has named his side for the Rebels’ third outing in the Munster Hurling League.

On the back of their wins over Kerry and Limerick, Kingston has made seven changes in personnel to his team for tomorrow night’s game in Mallow (7.30pm) against Waterford, who suffered a seven-point loss to Limerick in their only game so far.

With Colm Spillane moving from corner-back to full-back, the Castlelyons man will be flanked by Jack Sheehan and Sean O’Donoghue. They come into the team at the expense of Stephen McDonnell and David Griffin. The only other change in defence sees Chris Joyce replace Mark Coleman at wing-back.

Cormac Murphy comes in for Darragh Fitzgibbon to partner Daniel Kearney in midfield. In attack, Bill Cooper, Shane Kingston and Alan Cadogan — who contributed a combined tally of 3-9 from play in Sunday’s win over Limerick — make way for Dean Brosnan, Michael O’Halloran and Michael Cahalane.
