Austin Gleeson starts for the Déise, while Alan Cadogan is named for the Rebels.

WATERFORD AND CORK have named their starting teams for the Bórd Gáis Energy Munster U21 Hurling semi-final at Walsh Park tomorrow night.

The visiting Rebels include Cormac Murphy, Rob O’Shea and Killian Burke, all three of whom were on the senior team panel that won Sunday’s Munster final at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Alan Cadogan also starts for Cork, having scored three points in that success over Limerick and also having helped the county to a Munster title in U21 football earlier this year.

Hosts Waterford include Austin Gleeson in their half-forward line, with the Mount Sion man having scored a brilliant goal and two points on his senior debut back in May.

Jake Dillon of De La Salle captains the Déise team from midfield.

Throw-in at Walsh Park is at 7.30pm tomorrow.
