Conor Lehane has been passed fit to start for Cork in Sunday's Allianz HL meeting with Tipperary in Thurles.
The Midleton clubman missed the second-half of the Rebels five-point defeat to Waterford due to an ankle injury, but he has recovered in time for the Semple Stadium fixture.
Lehane's inclusion provides a huge boost for John Meyler's men with captain Seamus Harnedy ruled out through suspension following his red-card against the Deise.
Cork (Allianz HL v Tipperary): Anthony Nash; Sean O'Donoghue, Eoin Cadogan, Colm Spillane; Christopher Joyce, Tim O'Mahony, Mark Coleman; Darragh Fitzgibbon, Bill Cooper; Shane Kingston, Conor Lehane, Robbie O'Flynn; Alan Cadogan, Michael Cahalane, Patrick Horgan.
Subs: Patrick Collins, Conor O'Sullivan, Darren Browne, Dean Brosnan, Luke Meade, David Griffin, Lorcan McLoughlin, Brian Lawton, Daniel Kearney, Jack O'Connor, Stephen Murphy.
