FERMOY’S TOMÁS CLANCY returns to the Cork starting XV for Saturday’s Super 8s opener against All-Ireland champions Dublin in Croke Park.

Clancy was a second-half sub in the Rebels’ impressive win over Laois last weekend, and takes his place at centre-back with Kevin O’Donovan dropping to the bench.

Ronan McCarthy may be forced to make further changes to his side before throw-in with question marks surrounding the availability of Killian O’Hanlon who is named to start in midfield.

O’Hanlon suffered a head injury and was forced off after just 22 minutes against Laois, and is being monitored in line with the return-to-play protocols.

Throw-in at Croke Park is at 7pm.
