Kilkenny and Galway reveal starting lineups for tonights Leinster Under 20 Semi-Final

Kilkenny and Galway players collide during the 2018 All-Ireland Minor Hurling Final.

Kilkenny and Galway have named their starting 15's for this evening's Leinster Under 20 Hurling Championship Semi-Final.

Kilkenny are managed by former senior player Derek Lyng with Peter Barry and Michael Rice as selectors to the six time All-Ireland winner.

Lining up at centre forward Eoin Cody is the marquee star in the Kilkenny team after starring for the Kilkenny Seniors in this year's Championship.
