RICHIE HOGAN AND Colin Fennelly have been held in reserve again for Kilkenny, as they prepare to do battle with Galway in the Leinster SHC final replay.

The experienced duo were named on the bench for the drawn game last weekend, with both players coming on in the second half. Neither managed to put their names on the scoresheet, but Hogan put defender Enda Morrissey through for a score towards the end of the game with a brilliant pass.

Manager Brian Cody however, has elected to name an unchanged side for the replay in Semple Stadium on Sunday [Throw-in, 3pm].

Padraig Walsh is name to play in full-back after producing an excellent display last weekend, while TJ Reid will once again provide a huge scoring threat after finishing the drawn game with a tally of 0-10 (0-7f).

The Thurles venue has been chosen to host the tie due to the Michael Bublé concert taking place in Croke Park on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, the reigning Leinster champions Galway have also named an unchanged side for the replay.

Manager Micheál Donoghue has made just one positional change for the clash that started the drawn encounter.

Niall Burke is named on the half-forward line, while Cathal Mannion is set to start in the corner forward position.
