Wexford Senior Hurling Champions Naomh Eanna have suffered not one, but three major blows ahead of their Leinster club championship quarter-final…
Again, the major talking point comes in the form of Cathal Dunbar, who will now miss Naomh Eanna’s clash against Laois hurling champions, Camross, this weekend.
Originally, it was thought that Dunbar would miss the opening round of next year’s Wexford Senior Championship. But now, it appears that Dunbar’s one-match-suspension has been upheld by the DRA following clarification from the referee, and he will miss the next round of the club’s campaign.
Unfortunately for the Gorey town side, that’s not the only bad news.
Naomh Eanna’s two starting corner-backs Peter ‘Pedro’ Travers and Eoin Molloy are also forced out of the game and are likely to pick up lengthy suspensions. Both corner-backs have been ruled out after the two players received straight-red cards in last Saturday’s Leinster Junior football clash versus Kilkenny’s Tullogher.
All three players have excelled throughout their championship-winning campaign, with Gorey’s Eoin Molloy picking up the Man of the Match award in the county final against former champions St Martins.
Originally, PaddyPower had Naomh Eanna priced at 2/9, while Camross were priced at 7/2 outsiders on their home patch. Now, Naomh Eanna will enter the game as 1/3 favourites, while the Laois champions are priced at 9/4.
A win for Naomh Eanna on Sunday would set-up a mouth-watering home clash against Kilkenny champions Ballyhale Shamrocks.
