Cork will be without two key players for their Munster SHC semi-final against Waterford on Saturday after manager Kieran Kingston confirmed Eoin Cadogan and Darragh Fitzgibbon will both miss out through injury.

Veteran defender Cadogan (34) started at full-back in the Rebels' quarter-final defeat to Kilkenny last year, while 23-year-old Fitzgibbon was an All-Star midfielder in 2018.

Forward Robbie O'Flynn will also miss out as he serves a suspension for a straight red card picked up in their last game - an Allianz Hurling League defeat to Galway on 1 March.

Cork manager Kieran Kingston told the Irish Examiner: "Eoin has had a procedure on his back and this game is just a bit too soon for him. Darragh has a hamstring issue and it's a bit soon for him as well.

"It's a bit crazy that Robbie is missing this match because of something that happened in a different world, really."

Defender Colm Spillane is back in training, while Blackrock trio Alan Connolly, Daniel Meaney and Tadhg Deasy, along with Blarney's Shane Barrett, have been added to the squad after starring in the Cork club championship.

Waterford will be without captain Pauric Mahony, who will miss the entire championship campaign with a knee injury.
