Cork name two championship debutants to start Munster clash with Tipp

The Rebels go to Thurles on Saturday evening.

CORK MANAGER RONAN McCarthy has included five potential Championship debutants in his panel for Saturday night’s Munster senior football semi-final against Tipperary in Semple Stadium (throw-in 7pm).

Douglas clubman Kevin Flahive and Clonakilty’s Mark White are named to start, while fellow rookies Anthony Casey, Matthew Taylor, Sam Ryan, Cian Kiely, Stephen Sherlock and Ronan O’Toole are named among the substitutes.

Injury will keep Brian O’Driscoll, Killian O’Hanlon and Sean Powter out of the Munster SFC clash, but Stephen Sherlock and last year’s captain Paul Kerrigan are fit enough for a space on the bench.
