Cody makes four changes to Kilkenny squad for latest Leinster-Galway clash

BRIAN CODY Made four changes to the Kilkenny side who fell to Wexford in Leinster’s Championship round robin as they prepare to face Galway at Croke Park on Saturday.

The Cats go three straight Saturday night and Cody named Huw Lawlor fullback, with Conor Fogarty, Billy Ryan and Richie Leahy also named to start.

Conor Delaney, Alan Murphy, Walter Walsh and Tom Phelan make way.

Henry Shefflin named the same team that started their 0-27 0-21 win over Dublin at Pearse Stadium.

Donal O’Shea is part of the team of the day. The son of former Tipperary manager Eamon, he was crowned minor bowler of the year in 2018 after leading the Tribesmen to All-Ireland glory and was a star of the Galway U20 attack in both recent seasons.

The throw-in at Croke Park is at 7 p.m.
