Rebels coming in strongFollowing their exit in the Munster Championship at the hands of Limerick, Cork have responded well with two impressive wins over Clare and Dublin, the latter beaten by Kilkenny in the Leinster Final. Moreover, it’s those two confidence boosting wins that will give the Rebel faithful hope they can make the All Ireland final this year. However, Kilkenny have gone into this game more under the radar than their opponents. The Leinster champions beat Wexford in a thrilling Leinster semi-final prior to beating Dublin in the final. Despite the second Leinster title in a row, Kilkenny will be weary of history repeating itself after Waterford turned them over after coming through the qualifiers, like Cork, at the same stage last November. Furthermore, Kilkenny will take solace in the fact they have won 16 of the last 19 semi finals contested under Brian Cody.
