BRIAN CODY HAS made three changes to his Kilkenny side for tomorrow’s repeat of the 2016 All-Ireland final.

The Cats earned a welcome two points with a good win over Cork last weekend to get their campaign up and running.

An impressive-looking Premier provide the opposition this weekend at Semple Stadium.

Shane Prendergast replaces Kieran Joyce in defence while Liam Blanchfield and Alan Murphy are introduced to the full forward line in place of Conor Martin and the injured Richie Leahy.

Michael Ryan meanwhile has shuffled his deck too.

Seamus Callanan comes in to lead the attack. James Barry replaces Tomas Hamill in the No 3 shirt, Michael Cahill is alongside him with Donagh Maher moving into the other corner.

Sean Curran and Michael Breen replace Brendan Maher and Barry Heffernan in midfield.

Steven O’Brien drops out of the half forward line with Dan McCormack dropping back to fill the position.

1. Daragh Mooney (Éire Óg Annacarty-Donohill)
2. Donagh Maher (Burgess)
3. James Barry (Upperchurch-Drombane)
4. Michael Cahill (Thurles Sarsfields)
