Kilkenny face Tipperary in league showdown

tippkkKilkenny will be looking to win their third Allianz Hurling League title in a row this afternoon, as they take on Tipperary in the Division 1 Final.


It’s the second year in a row these sides have met in the final.


Brian Cody has continued his policy of rotating his panel throughout the League campaign, as he made three changes to his side for the final.


Joey Holden, Jackie Tyrrell and Richie Power all come into the side, with Walter Walsh, Brian Hogan and John Power all missing out.


Tipperary, meanwhile, have named an unchanged team to that which started against Clare in their semi final victory two weeks ago.


Throw in at Semple Stadium in Thurles is at 3.30pm.
