Team news ahead of this weekend's Allianz Hurling League fixtures

Cork v Dublin, 7pm - eir Sport

Cork manager Kieran Kingston has named an unchanged team for Saturday's Allianz Hurling League Division 1A clash with Dublin.

The Rebels defeated Clare in the opening round of games and Kingston will be hoping to make it two wins from two when they face Ger Cunningham's Dublin in Pairc Ui Rinn.

Dublin were beaten by Tipperary last weekend and Kingston is expecting them to be hungry for the win on Saturday. 

“It will be a tough game and there will be a huge kick in Dublin after their first round defeat to Tipperary. We’re expecting a huge challenge and a very tough game,” Kingston is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner. 

Cork (SH v Dublin): A Nash; K Burke, C Spillane, D Griffin; C Joyce, M Ellis, M Coleman; B Cooper, D Kearney; S Harnedy, L Meade, S Kingston; A Cadogan, P Horgan, D Fitzgibbon. 

Laois v Offaly, 7pm - eir Sport

There are two changes to the Laois team for the Division 1B clash with Offaly at O'Moore Park. 

Goalkeeper Enda Rowland comes in to the side following the defeat to Kerry in Tralee last weekend, while Cahir Healy takes his place at right half-back. 

Eoin Fleming and Cian Taylor are the players to miss out. 

Laois (SH v Offaly): E Rowland; D Palmer, L Bergin, P Lawlor; C Healy, M Whelan, R Mullaney; P Purcell, B Conroy; S Maher, C Dwyer, P Whelan; W Dunphy, N Foyle, R King.
