CORK expect to have both Alan Cadogan and Mark Ellis available for their Allianz Hurling League Division 1 semi-final with Dublin in Nowlan Park on Sunday week.

The pair suffered hamstring injuries during the Rebels' collapse at home to Tipp in their final 1A match and were replaced by Paudie O'Sullivan and Conor O'Sullivan.

Neither lined out last Monday in a 1-25 to 0-24 win over Laois in a challenge match in Ballacolla but are expected to be in the running for selection when Cork face Dublin for the second time in this year's League. Cork won the first game by 11 points (0-34 to 1-20) back on March 7.

Meanwhile, four players have been let go from the Tyrone panel after their League campaign concluded last Sunday with relegation.

Paddy McNiece, Shay McGuigan, Emmet McKenna and Dwayne Quinn - none of whom played against Kerry in Omagh on Sunday when the teams drew - will not form part of Mickey Harte's 2015 Championship panel.

The experienced Joe McMahon and Dermot Carlin have returned to the fold.
