KERRY boss Peter Keane has kept change to a minimum for Sunday’s SFC semi-finals against Cork – but that leads to some high profile omissions in the kingdom’s attack.

eane rewarded 14 of the 15 players who started Kerry’s last Allianz League appearance against Donegal, a win that earned the Division One title. The only change concerns Stephen O’Brien, who fell off the bench in Tralee two weeks ago and has now ousted Micheál Burns from the start.

A total of ten of Kerry’s All-Ireland final repeat team from last year are on the grid. The promoted quintet are the recovering Peter Crowley and Gavin White in central defense and the attacking trio Ronan Buckley, Tony Brosnan and Dara Moynihan (who appeared as late submarines in this defeat in Dublin 14 months ago).

Buckley, who recently became East Kerry County champion, is about to make his championship debut after breaking through with the striker on league resumption last month.

It’s also a big chance for the formidable Brosnan to lay claim to long-term residency four years after bowing his championship as a sub to Clare in the 2016 All-Ireland quarter-finals.

The sniper from Dr. Crokes was the man of the game against Donegal with six points and now keeps the No. 13 jersey, which neither Paul Geaney nor James O’Donoghue have a place in the inside line.

When hurling, Eamonn Dillon and Ronan Hayes were attacked again in Dublin on Saturday for the All Ireland hurling qualifier against Cork at Semple Stadium.

The duo are rewarded for their performance in last weekend’s roller coaster defeat by Kilkenny in a surreal Leinster semi-final. Two-time all stars Liam Rushe and Davy Keogh lose.

The electric Dillon scored 4-0 and helped score several more points, while Hayes buried his first goal as the Dubs climbed from 16 points to parity to suffer a heartache on death.

Meanwhile, Cork has called the changes in response to the depressing Munster to Waterford exit last weekend.

Kieran Kingston makes five changes, with Sean O’Leary Hayes, Christopher Joyce, Daire Connery and Conor Lehane all falling to the bench while Alan Cadogan – who is reportedly suffering from an injury – is absent from game day.

This quintet is replaced by Colm Spillane in full-back, Luke Meade in midfield and Robbie O’Flynn, Declan Dalton and Jack O’Connor in attack.
