Kilkenny 1-22 Cork 2-17
Kilkenny hit the ground running in Pairc Ui Rinn on Saturday evening and sent the Kilkenny supporters in the near 9000 crowd home in great spirits looking forward to the season ahead. They lead by two points at the break and following a commanding 3rd quarter were 8 points to the good entering the last 10 minutes. But two late Cork goals made for an edgy finish but Kilkenny were full value for their two point victory.

The Kilkenny team to play Cork in the Allianz Hurling League opener in Pairc Ui Rinn has been named. Brian Cody and his selectors, already without the services of the Ballyhale players, have also had to plan without the injured Power brothers and Eoin Larkin. Despite this, the first 15 named for Saturday’s game all have Allianz League experience. The most interesting pointer to the season ahead may be the positioning of Paul Murphy in the No 3 shirt. Meanwhile St Lachtain' Darren Brennan, Mullinavat’s Padraig Gahan and Ger Malone, St Patrick’s Bill Staunton and Kevin Kelly and Clara’s Keith Hogan, brother of the retired Brian, are newcomers to this Allianz League match day panel.
