Cork v Kerry – Munster U20 Hurling – Live scores commentary and team news from the match with a start time of 6:30pm Monday 19th October.
The Munster U20 Hurling Championship kicks-off on Monday night and Kerry have entered the top tier after three ‘B’ All-Irelands in-a-row. On the other hand, Cork came so close last season in the final against Tipperary. With many of the same names in their ranks, the rebels are hoping to go all the way this time.
Five of the Cork’s first 15 for this Monday night started last year’s All-Ireland final. On that occasion, they lost 5-17 to 1-18 to Tipperary. Now, captain Conor O’Callaghan, Tommy O’Connell, Shane O’Regan, Eoin Roche, and Brian Roche have a chance to rectify that loss. These players retain their places in the team from last year’s decider.
Furthermore, Alan Connolly lines out at full-forward for Cork. Connolly starred for Blackrock in the Cork senior Championship. To illustrate, he scored 0-13 in the final against Glen Rovers.
Meanwhile, Kerry join the top tier Championship after their ‘B’ All-Ireland win over Down in 2019. Similarly to Cork, a number of their finalists last year have retained their place in the side for Monday night. Tadhg Brick, Dan Goggin, Michael Lenihan, Gavin Dooley, and Michael Slattery are all in the fifteen. In addition to this, Seamus O’Halloran is ready to join from the bench as he did last year.
