Mark Ellis (centre back), Aidan Walsh (midfield) and Alan Cadogan (right corner forward) will make their first championship starts for Cork against Waterford in the Munster SHC quarter-final at Semple Stadium.

The starting fifteen shows eleven survivors from the team that lined out in last year's All-Ireland final replay - Damien Cahalane is the other newcomer while Brian Murphy (retired), Conor O'Sullivan, William Egan and Luke O'Farrell (injured) are the four players to make way.

Cahalane will make his Munster SHC debut at full back, the dual star wore the number three jersey when Jimmy Barry-Murphy's charges defeated Wexford in the All-Ireland Qualifiers in 2012 at Sunday's venue.

Paudie O'Sullivan, who missed the Rebels' run to the All-Ireland final last year after suffering a horrific double leg break, is named among the substitutes.

Cork (SHC v Waterford) - Anthony Nash; Shane O'Neill, Damien Cahalane, Stephen McDonnell; Christopher Joyce, Mark Ellis, Lorcan McLoughlin; Daniel Kearney, Aidan Walsh; Conor Lehane, Cian McCarthy, Patrick Cronin; Alan Cadogan, Seamus Harnedy, Patrick Horgan.

Subs: Darren McCarthy, Conor O'Sullivan, Killian Burke, Willian Egan, Rob O'Shea, Brian Lawton, Bill Cooper, Jamie Coughlan, Paudie O'Sullivan, Stephen Moylan, Brian Hartnett.
