CORK HAVE MADE three changes to the side which saw off Limerick for Wednesday’s night’s Munster U20 Hurling Championship final against Tipperary, who are named as being unchanged apart from three new faces on their bench.

For Pat Ryan’s Rebels, in come Colin O’Brien and Brian Hayes, who shot 1-9 between them off the bench in the semi-final, for Sam Burke and Seán Twomey respectively.

Ballygiblin’s Darragh Flynn, meanwhile, replaces Jack Cahalane in midfield. The former, 18, was the top scorer in last year’s minor championship.

For two-in-a-row All-Ireland champions Tipp, meanwhile, John Devane has named the same starting XV with three positional switches and as many new faces on the bench.

Conor Bowe moves from the half-forward line to left corner-forward, Devon Ryan moves from left half-forward to centre-forward, and Sean Ryan will wear 12.

Max Hackett, who made a goalscoring introduction against Waterford during the Premier’s victorious semi, remains on the bench, onto which come Boherlahan Dualla’s John Ryan, Thurles Sarsfields’ Eoin Purcell and Willie Barry of Cappawhite.
