Tipperary have gone with the same XV that started against Cork for Sunday's All-Ireland SHC final against Kilkenny at Croke Park, 3.30pm (Live on RTÉ One). 

Darren Gleeson, Cathal Barrett, James Barry, Kieran Bergin and John O'Dwyer all start in what will be their first senior All-Ireland final.

2011 All Star defender Michael Cahill, who was introduced off the bench against Cork following a return from injury, is a surprise omission but is likely to be named amongst the Premier County’s substitutes.

Former Hurler of the Year Lar Corbett will be hoping to bounce back from an underwhelming semi-final display when he was substituted after failing to score.

Tipperary and Kilkenny have met in the Championship for each of the last six seasons, with the Cats dominating the head-to-head record courtesy of five victories. 

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.
