Aisake to spearhead Rebel attack  

Aisake O’hAilpin will make his debut for Cork when the Rebel hurlers take on Tipperary in the Munster SHC semi-final on Sunday. His older brother Seán Og starts in the familiar role of wing back.

Aisake, a former Aussie Rules player with Carlton, has done enough in challenge matches since his return from Australia before Christmas for manager Denis Walsh to trust him with a starting role at full forward.

Corner-back Conor O’Sullivan will also make his championship debut, while Eoin Cadogan has the dubious task of trying to replace the retired Diarmuid O’Sullivan at three.

Patrick Horgan and Kieran Murphy of Sarsfields man the corner forward positions.

Cork (SH v Tipperary): D Óg Cusack; S O’Neill, E Cadogan, C O’Sullivan; J Gardiner, R Curran, S Óg Ó hAilpín; T Kenny, J O’Connor; B O’Connor, N McCarthy, T McCarthy; P Horgan, A Ó hAilpín, K Murphy (Sarsfields).
