Kilkenny have named their team for Sunday's All-Ireland Hurling final against Tipperary with Eddie Brennan replacing TJ Reid the only change for Brian Cody’s men.

Brennan has not started a Championship match this year but Cody has opted to start with the experienced 32-year old in place of Reid.

Colin Fennelly, who was rated extremely doubtful for final because of a hamstring injury, has also been named in the starting XV.

D Herity, P Murphy, N Hickey, J Tyrrell, T Walsh, B Hogan, JJ Delaney, M Fennelly, M Rice, E Brennan, R Power, H Shefflin, C Fennelly, E Larkin, R Hogan.
