Kilkenny hurling manager Brian Cody has once again shuffled his deck for Saturday's Allianz Hurling League clash with Clare.

The Cats are already assured of top spot in Division 1B following last week's 1-29 to 0-22 victory over Laois.

Last week's goalscorer Liam Blanchfield is among those retreating to the bench, with TJ Reid restored to the full-forward line.
