Cork senior hurling manager Jimmy Barry Murphy again has the luxury of naming an unchanged team for Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final clash with Tipperary at Croke Park.

The Cork team is the same starting line-up which overcame Limerick in the Munster final five weeks ago and is also the same starting side that beat Clare in the Munster semi-final.

Captain Pa Cronin had been the only injury concern for the Rebels but he has recovered from a fractured fibula sustained in the 2-24 to 0-24 win over Limerick.

Tipperary have also been able to go with the same starting XV again as manager Eamon O'Shea keeps faith with the side that beat Dublin 2-23 to 0-16 in the quarter-finals.

Defender Michael Cahill must settle for a place on the bench, despite recovering from injury as Paddy Stapleton retains his place in the line-up after an impressive display against the Dubs.

Cork: A Nash; S O'Neill, D Cahalane, S McDonnell; C Joyce, M Ellis, L McLoughlin; D Kearney, A Walsh; C Lehane, B Cooper, S Harnedy; A Cadogan, P Cronin, P Horgan.

Tipperary: D Gleeson; C Barrett, P Maher, P Stapleton; B Maher, J Barry, K Bergin; S McGrath, J Woodlock; G Ryan, P Maher, J O’Dwyer; N McGrath, S Callanan, L Corbett
