CORK have made a change to their team to play Dublin in the Super 8s in Croke Park tomorrow evening at 7pm.

Killian O’Hanlon (Kilshannig) misses out due to the head injury sustained against Laois and Ronan O’Toole (Éire Óg) takes over at midfield. Tadhg Corkery (Cill na Martra) is now on the bench.

O’Toole (23) came on in the Munster championship win over Limerick, was an unused substitute against Kerry and replaced the unfortunate O’Hanlon after 20 minutes last weekend.

And the former U21 player made his presence count with a fine point approaching half-time following a long kick-out by keeper Mark White and a super catch from Ruairí Deane.

O’Toole made his championship debut in the big win over Tipperary in Thurles last year. Meanwhile, the Cork team to play Waterford in the Munster U20 football semi-final in Clonakilty this evening at 7pm includes senior panellist Damien Gore.

He forms part of an exciting inside line of Mark Cronin and Cathal O’Mahony, who was the stand-out player in the recent John Kerins Cup, won by Galway, winners of the Connacht title, as well.

Eanna O’Hanlon is at midfield with Brian Hartnett while Peter O’Driscoll captains the team from left half-back.

And there’s the welcome return to the panel of Colm O’Callaghan from a cruciate knee injury.

CORK U20s: J O'Keeffe (Newmarket); M O'Mahony (Knocknagree), M Shanley (Clonakilty), P Ring (Aghabullogue); G O'Donovan (Newcestown), J Hickey (Millstreet), P O'Driscoll (Ilen Rovers), captain; B Hartnett (Douglas), E O'Hanlon (Kilshannig); C Barrett (St Finbarr's), B Murphy (St Vincent's), M Hodnett (Carbery Rangers); M Cronin (Nemo Rangers), C O'Mahony (Mitchelstown), D Gore (Kilmacabea).

Subs: I Giltinan (Carrigaline), J McCarthy (do), F Herlihy (Dohenys), D O'Connell (Kanturk), R Maguire (Castlehaven), J McCarthy (Éire Óg), B Hayes (St Finbarr's), D Buckley (Newcestown), C O'Callaghan (Éire Óg).
