Both teams have are down numerous players from last year Championship, due to injury, suspension or personal reasons.

Most notably for Cork, Eoin Cadogan has played in 2017 due his injuries and Midfielder Sean Kiely choose not to join the panel this year. As for Tipperary, they are down five players, and may struggle without Evan Comerford in goals due to his suspension.

Leinster Senior Hurling Championship - Semi Final, Wexford v Kilkenny 

All eyes will be on Innovate Wexford Park come Saturday evening, as Kilkenny will take on Wexford, both hoping to secure a place in the Leinster Hurling Final. It starts at 7pm, and will be shown on Sky Sports 3.

This is set to be a brilliant match, tickets are completely sold out, but best to save a seat somewhere for Davy Fitzgerald as he is still serving his suspension.

The Cats will be seeking revenge: Wexford beat them in this year's league quarter-final.

Sunday

Sunday is a day jammed with Gaelic football, with two semi-finals taking place.

Ulster Senior Football Championship - Semi-Final, Cavan v Monaghan 

Firstly, we head north, as Cavan and Monaghan will meet in the semi-final of the Ulster Football Championship. Throw in is at 2pm and coverage will be on RTÉ 2 and BBC 1 Northern Ireland.

Monaghan manager Malachy O'Rourke has named an unchanged side that beat Fermanagh in the quarter-finals. There is a surprise though, as he has placed Darren Hughes on the bench who was supposedly ruled out for three months, after sustaining a knee injury in a club game in April, so there is a possibility now of Hughes coming on.

Connacht Senior Football Championship - Semi-Final, Mayo v Galway

Going west, and Galway will face Mayo in for a place in the Connacht Football Final. The semi-final's throw in is at 4pm, and coverage will be shown on RTÉ 2.

For Mayo, Jason Doherty will replace an injured Conor O'Shea in the full forward line, while Aidan O'Shea has again not been named in the starting 15, however you can bet will most likely be brought on.

It will be a significant day for Andy Moran as it will be his 150th senior championship appearance, since debuting in 2004.
