CORK HAVE MADE two changes for tomorrow night’s oneills.com Munster U20 hurling championship game against Limerick.

Darragh O’Sullivan is drafted into defence at corner-back and Eoin O’Leary is named at corner-forward, with Cathal McCarthy and Daniel Hogan listed amongst the substitutes.

Both O’Sullivan and O’Leary, All-Ireland minor winners in 2021, came on in last week’s win over Clare in Sixmilebridge, with Glen Rovers forward O’Leary pointing three frees.

Opponents Limerick have made one change for a game that will be streamed live on Sport TG4 YouTube. 

Cathal O’Neill, the scoring star in Limerick’s opening U20 game against Clare, is now unavailable after appearing in senior championship action on Sunday against Cork. In his absence the management hand a starting place to Cian Scully, a Croke Cup winner in March with Ardscoil Rís, in defence and make positional changes elsewhere.

Waterford have made four changes for their match tomorrow night against Kerry. Mark Kilgannon is named in goal, Colin Foley comes in at corner-back, Willie Beresford is named at midfield and Jake Foley is selected at corner-forward.

Both Cork and Limerick have already qualified from the three-team Group 1 due to their victories over Clare.

This match will determine who tops the group and has a home semi-final against Waterford or Kerry on 27 April. The second-placed side will travel to face Tipperary in Thurles in the other semi-final.

Throw-in tomorrow evening in Páirc Uí Rinn and the Fraher Field is 7pm.
