The name of TJ Reid is a notable absentee from the Kilkenny team named by Brian Cody to face Laois. 

The 33-year old scored 1-18 as the Cats put Wexford to the sword last week in Division 1B of the Allianz Hurling League.

However, the Ballyhale Shamrocks marksman isn't included in Cody's matchday 26.
