Wexford Senior hurling selector Seoirse Bulfin was speaking to GAA.ie journalist Cian O’Connell at the launch of the Leinster Championship on Wednesday…
“It is just a quirk of the draw to be away to Dublin and Galway,” Bulfin remarked.
“There will be no easy game in either Munster or Leinster. Having two away games first is definitely a challenge.”
“Realistically we can’t be looking beyond the Dublin game for now because, like we said already, so many things can happen with injuries that we are looking at the Dublin game. We will re-assess after that to look at the Galway game, but two away games is a difficult ask to start with, definitely.”
“The fact that four matches are imminent makes it particularly interesting according to Bulfin. “I suppose the way the League worked out for the last two years you can do a small bit of modelling of the system for the Championship,” Bulfin stated.
“The League games come in fairly quick succession so you kind of get used to it preparing for the Championship. The more games it is great and it is great to be getting these extra games in the new format. It is brilliant.”
