BRIAN Cody has been forced into a move at full-back for tomorrow’s Leinster SHC clash against Dublin at Parnell Park.
Following reports last week that he sustained a broken hand at Salthill against Galway, Huw Lawlor is out while Conor Delaney joins the otherwise unchanged side.
Mattie Kenny, meanwhile, has made two changes to his Dublin side from their last game, a 0-27, 1-16 win over Westmeath at Mullingar.
Fergal Whitely, who contributed two points from the bench in a late win, starts in place of Paul Crummey while Daire Gray returns to the team at full-back in place of Shane Barrett.
KILKENNY (SH vs. Dublin): E Murphy; M Butler, C Delaney, T Walsh; M Carey, P Deegan, C Browne; J Maher, C Buckley; W Walsh, P Walsh, A Mullen; B Ryan, TJ Reid, E Cody.
DUBLIN (SH): S Brennan; J Madden, E O’Donnell, C O’Callaghan; D Ryan, P Smyth, D Gray; C Burke, C Crommey; Burke D, McBride R, Sutcliffe D; F Whitely, R Hayes, A Mellett.
