Cork have made one change to their team for Saturday’s All-Ireland hurling final replay.

Cian McCarthy, son of the 1990 dual All-Ireland medallist Teddy, comes in at centre forward in place of Jamie Coughlan in the only alteration to the side which drew with Clare earlier this month.

McCarthy played against the same opponents in June’s Munster semi-final and topped the Cork possession count.

Along with Séamus Harnedy, who has retained his place after rumours of an injury, and Conor Lehane, named in the corner, McCarthy formed a half-forward line that did considerably better than the team managed three weeks ago.

CORK (v Clare): Anthony Nash; Stephen McDonnell, Shane O’Neill, Conor O’Sullivan; Brian Murphy, Christopher Joyce, William Egan; Lorcáin McLoughlin, Daniel Kearney; Séamus Harnedy, Cian McCarthy, Patrick Cronin (capt); Luke O’Farrell, Patrick Horgan, Conor Lehane.

Subs: Darren McCarthy, Killian Murphy, Mark Ellis, Tom Kenny, Stephen White, Rob O’Shea, Jamie Coughlan, Cathal Naughton, Stephen Moylan, Michael O’Sullivan, Michael Cussen.
