Paul O’Brien makes no changes to the U20 Hurlers as they head for Nowlan Park to face Cork in the All Ireland Final
Dublin v Cork
Saturday, July 9th. 7:15pm
Nowlan Park, Kilkenny
We’ve been treated to a huge feast of hurling recently in the county. Dublin’s Senior Hurlers are poised to face Kilkenny next weekend in this year’s Leinster Hurling Final having beaten Antrim and Galway to reach the decider.
But let’s not forget that tomorrow the U20 Hurlers face a huge game against Cork, with the All Ireland title in the balance. Only two weeks ago Paul O’Brien’s men went head to head with a tough Galway side and came away 2 point winners to clinch the 2020 Leinster title.
Tomorrow the stakes are a lot higher, with Dublin and Cork squaring off with one to be crowned the best U20 Hurlers in the country.
Earlier this evening, the Dublin boss named his panel for the massive challenge. And O’Brien has shown full confidence in his provincial winning side, making no changes to the team that started and beat Galway a forthnight ago.
And while there are no changes to O’Brien starting 15, there are two changes amongst the substitutes, with Brian Sheehy and Pádhraic Linehan coming into the panel of 24.
Tomorrow night’s game will be shown live on TG4, and we’ll have live updates on our Twitter feed from throw in on www.twitter.com/wearedub.
