JACKIE TYRRELL, TJ Reid and Aidan Fogarty are all back in the Kilkenny team for tomorrow’s Leinster hurling semi-final replay against Dublin.

Manager Brian Cody makes three changes from the side that drew last Sunday in O’Moore Park in Portlaoise.

Tyrrell comes back into the team at corner-back after recovering from a recent quad injury and he replaces the injured Paul Murphy.

TJ Reid is drafted in at wing-forward with Cillian Buckley switching to midfield as Lester Ryan drops to the bench.

The final change sees Aidan Fogarty brought in at corner-forward instead of Colin Fennelly.
