Cork hurling boss John Meyler has made one enforced change to his team for Sunday's Munster championship meeting with Tipperary in Thurles.

Douglas clubman Shane Kingston is named at full-forward in place of the injured Robbie O'Flynn, who was stretchered off in the Rebels' 2-23 to 1-21 victory over Clare at Pairc Ui Chaoimh last weekend.

Elsewhere, things stay the same for the Munster champions with Darragh Fitzgibbon and Bill Cooper set to partner each other at centre-field for the second weekend in-a-row and Conor Lehane named on 'the 40'.

Throw-in at Semple Stadium is at 2.00pm.

Cork (Munster SHC v Tipperary): Anthony Nash; Sean O'Donoghue, Damien Cahalane, Colm Spillane; Christopher Joyce, Mark Ellis, Mark Coleman; Darragh Fitzgibbon, Bill Cooper; Seamus Harnedy, Conor Lehane, Daniel Kearney; Luke Meade, Shane Kingston, Patrick Horgan

Subs: Patrick Collins, Eoin Cadogan, Tim O'Mahony, Darren Browne, Dean Brosnan, Brian Lawton, Jack O'Connor, Ron O'Shea, Jamie Coughlan, Lorcan McLoughlin, Conor O'Sullivan
