The Kilkenny team to face Galway in Sunday’s All-Ireland SHC final at Croke Park shows one enforced change from the side that saw off Tipperary in last month’s semi-final.

Manager Brian Cody has selected Richie Hogan to replace the injured Michael Rice in midfield.

Rice suffered a hand injury in the drubbing of the Premier County, while a ban meant Hogan missed the Cats’ semi-final encounter.

Kilkenny: D Herity; P Murphy, JJ Delaney, J Tyrrell; T Walsh, B Hogan, K Joyce; M Fennelly, R Hogan; H Shefflin, TJ Reid, E Larkin; C Fennelly, R Power, A Fogarty.

Galway's change from the side that beat Cork in the semi-final sees Cyril Donnelan come in for Conor Cooney in the half-forward line. 

Galway: James Skehill; David Collins, Kevin Hynes, Fergal Moore; (capt), Niall Donoghue, Tony Og Regan, Johnny Coen; Andy Smith, Iarlaith Tannian; David Burke, Niall Burke, Cyril Donnellan; Damien Hayes, Joe Canning, James Regan
