Clare will name their team later for Saturday’s All-Ireland hurling semi-final showdown with Kilkenny.

It is expected there could be changes to the starting team from the side that lined out against Wexford, with Cian Nolan pushing for a place in the Banner defence after an impressive showing last time out.

Aidan McCarthy is set to return to the matchday squad for the first time this year, while Shane Meehan and Mark Rodgers are also in contention for starting places.


Clare selector Ken Ralph feels the squad are experienced enough to handle whatever comes their way over the course of the contest in Croke Park
