Fitzpatrick handed Kilkenny start
Kilkenny manager Brian Cody has made two changes for Sunday's All-Ireland SHC semi-final against Galway.
James 'Cha' Fitzpatrick comes in at midfield to replace Michael Rice, who is named on the bench, having made progress in his recovery from a broken bone in a hand.
And in attack, Aidan Fogarty comes in for Martin Comerford.
The All-Ireland champions go in as favourites to take another step towards an unprecedented five in a row.
