Christopher Joyce will make his debut for the Cork hurlers in Saturday’s All-Ireland qualifier against Offaly at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, throw-in 7.00pm.

The 20-year-old Na Piarsaigh club-man starts at centre-back in place of Eoin Cadogan, who drops to the bench, but is likely to feature for the Cork footballers in the Munster final against Clare 24 hours later.

Another change to the side that lost to Tipperary sees Cian McCarthy take the place of Cathal Naughton at No 11.

Cork XV to play Offaly in Phase 2 qualifier:
A Nash; S O'Neill, B Murphy, C O'Sullivan; T Kenny, C Joyce, W Egan; D Sweetnam, L McLoughlin; C Lehane, C McCarthy, P Cronin; J Coughlan, P O'Sullivan, P Horgan.
