Tipperary and Kilkenny will name their teams this evening ahead of Sunday’s All-Ireland Hurling final.

Cillian Buckley is being tipped to get the nod to start in the Kilkenny midfield while Richie Hogan is expected to shake off a knee issue to take his place in the forwards.

Tipperary manager Liam Sheedy must choose between Seamus Kennedy and James Barry in his defence.

Kilkenny legend Tommy Walsh thinks the sides are well matched
