Shefflin return boosts Kilkenny

Henry Shefflin has been included in the Kilkenny team for Sunday's All-Ireland SHC final against Tipperary after making a miraculous recovery from a knee injury.

Shefflin had initially been ruled out of the Liam McCarthy Cup decider after he suffered a cruciate ligament injury during the semi-final win over Cork.

But intense rehabilitation work has seen him passed fit, and he will line out at centre forward this weekend.

Brian Hogan misses out due to a broken finger, and is replaced at centre back by John Tennyson.

Kilkenny (All-Ireland SHC final v Tipperary) - PJ Ryan; J Dalton, N Hickey, J Tyrrell; T Walsh, J Tennyson, JJ Delaney; J Fitzpatrick, M Fennelly; TJ Reid, H Shefflin, E Larkin; E Brennan, R Power, A Fogarty.
