Clare: unchanged from Limerick win. Bryan Keane/INPHO

Clare trust unchanged side to win their first Munster title in 20 years

And Cork are unchanged too.

LAST UPDATE | 29 Jun 2018

CORK AND CLARE have both named unchanged sides for Sunday’s Munster senior hurling final (2pm).

The unbeaten Rebels, who are looking to retain the Munster title for the first time since 2006, stick with the side which beat Waterford by three points in the final round-robin match.

Clare booked their place in the Thurles decider with a 11-point trimming of a flat Limerick side a fortnight ago, and joint managers Gerry O’Connor and Donal Moloney have shown faith in the same starting XV.

The Banner are bidding for their first provincial crown since Ger Loughnane steered them to the title in 1998.

David Reidy is available to start at wing-forward after his controversial red card for an off-the-ball incident against Limerick was rescinded on appeal.

But Moloney will not be on the sideline after failing in his bid to have his three-month ban overturned by the Central Hearings Committee.
