KILKENNY team manager will announce his starting fifteen for next Sunday’s NHL final against Cork - with a panel hit by injuries.

While Kilkenny welcome back Richie Hogan, a recent knee injury for Richie Power and a broken wrist suffered by Aidan Fogarty has limited Kilkenny’s attacking options.

Michael Rice is also out of contention as are long term injury concerns Henry Shefflin and John Tennyson.

“We don’t know how things are at the moment with all the injured players. We have had injuries all the time. Unfortunately, Richie Power picked up an injury at the weekend. We wish him well. Richie and that situation will be looked after as best we can and we will prepare for the League final as ever,” said the team manager.
