KILDARE Senior Hurling Manager, David Herity, caused a couple of surprises when he announced his team for Saturday’s Christy Ring Cup Final against Mayo in Croke Park, throw in 5pm.

Herity did warn us that such was the competition for places it was always going to be difficult to select a match day squad never mind a starting 15.

A very strong Kildare team has, nonetheless, been selected for Saturday for a game in which they are strong favourites to collect their fourth Christy Ring crown and a return to the Joe McDonagh Cup for 2023.
