Cork name same team for fourth game running with two changes to subs
Kieran Kingston takes his side into action against Waterford on Sunday.

KIERAN KINGSTON HAS named the same Cork side for the fourth successive championship game in 2017 as they prepare to take on Waterford in Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final in Croke Park.

The Cork boss has stuck with the side that delivered the Munster title last month with a victory over Clare.

Luke Meade, who missed two outings for the Cork U21′s since that senior match due to a finger injury, has been named to start in attack.

He’s joined in the starting fifteen by Colm Spillane, Mark Coleman, Darragh Fitzgibbon and Shane Kingston, who will all be making their first appearance for Cork in Croke Park.

There are two changes to the substitutes from the Munster final success. Defender Conor O’Sullivan is back from injury while forward Michael O’Halloran impressed in Cork’s Munster U21 campaign.

That duo replace Paul Haughney and Robbie O’Flynn in the list of replacements.


1. Anthony Nash – Kanturk

2. Stephen McDonnell – Glen Rovers (captain)
3. Damien Cahalane – St Finbarr’s
4. Colm Spillane – Castlelyons
