CORK BOSS KIERAN Kingston has made five changes in personnel ahead of the Rebels’s Allianz Hurling League clash with Waterford on Saturday night at Pairc Ui Rinn (7pm).
Kingston has reshuffled his forward line with Bill Cooper and Patrick Horgan the only starting attackers retained from their disappointing 1-27 to 1-21 defeat to Galway last weekend.
Seamus Harnedy, Cork’s goalscorer at Pearse Stadium, is ruled out this week with a hamstring injury while Cormac Murphy, Paudie O’Sullivan, Patrick Cronin and Alan Cadogan drop to the bench.
Colm Spillane comes into the half-back line in a move that allows Aidan Walsh to shift into midfield, where he will partner the incoming Daniel Kearney.
Lorcan McLoughlin moves into the half-forward line from midfield with Brian Lawton coming in on the other flank.
William Leahy will lead the full-forward line in Harnedy’s absence with Midleton’s Conor Lehane introduced into the starting XV alongside him at right corner-forward.
