JOE CANNING RETURNS to the Galway starting side for tomorrow’s Leinster hurling semi-final against Dublin. 

Canning has been named at midfield with Cathal Mannion switching to centre-froward. There are two changes in the announced side from Galway’s last league game against Cork, with Shane Cooney also drafted in at corner-back. Evan Niland and TJ Brennan drop to the bench.

Dublin have named an unchanged side from last week’s opening round success over Antrim in Navan.

Brian Cody has announced his Kilkenny team for their clash with Wexford at Croke Park tomorrow.

Adrian Mullen captains a side that features four of his club-mates from Shamrocks Ballyhale in TJ and Richie Reid, Darragh Corcoran and Eoin Cody.

Wexford have also shown their hand for that dual. Mark Fanning starts in goal while Diarmuid O’Keeffe and Liam Óg McGovern pair up at midfield.

Rory O’Connor and Conor McDonald will start in the half-forward line with Lee Chin taking up the full-forward position.
