CORK BOSS KIERAN Kingston has placed the emphasis on youth for tomorrow night’s league clash with Limerick as part of ten changes while Tipperary welcome captain Seamus Callanan back to face Westmeath on Sunday.
Only two players in the Cork starting fifteen, Damien Cahalane and Alan Cadogan, are over the age of 24 for the trip to the Gaelic Grounds as ten changes are made from the landslide win against Westmeath last time out.
Patrick Collins returns in goal while Cahalane, Niall O’Leary, Ger Millerick and Mark Coleman, who captains the team, are brought into the defence. Billy Hennessy is introduced to the midfield while the attack sees Shane Kingston, Robbie O’Flynn, Declan Dalton and Jack O’Connor all handed starts.

Fr O’Neills duo Millerick and Dalton are both set to make their first appearances in this year’s league while there are newcomers on the bench in Cormac O’Brien and Daire O’Leary, both part of last year’s U20 squad that have qualified for the All-Ireland final, which is scheduled to take place in July.
Tipperary have named Callanan at full-forward with goalkeeper Brian Hogan also drafted in, along with centre-back Brendan Maher and wing-back Brian McGrath.
Michael Breen comes in at midfield to partner Paddy Cadell while Willie Connors is drafted into the attack at wing-forward.
Barry Hogan, Seamus Kennedy, Ronan Maher, Alan Flynn, Dillon Quirke and John O’Dwyer are the players to make way for Tipperary.
