Writing in his column for PaddyPower, John Mullane has weighed in on the Wexford Senior hurling championship..
The Waterford legend is tipping 2018 Champions Naomh Eanna to claim victory in this year’s 2020 Wexford Senior hurling championship.
Naomh Eanna are placed into a group with the Rapparees and the Shelmaliers. With Liam Ryan out injured with a broken foot, Mullane believes this will impact the Rapparees defence.
The battles between Ryan and Naomh Eanna’s sharp-shooter Conor McDonald down through the years have been titanic, but with Ryan injured, that task has become much harder for the Rapps.
”Even some of the managers who will be involved like Derek McGrath, Jason Ryan, Adrian Fenlon and John Meyler. The team that I think will come out on top are Naomh Eanna and I’ll tell you why. They were champions in 2018 and it’s very hard to do back-to-back championships so I would forgive them for last year. They know what it’s like to get over the line and they’ll be a lot hungrier this year.”
“The Rapparees are in their group but they’ll be without Liam Ryan and that’s a big loss to them. Naomh Eanna have also got two of the best forwards in Wexford in Conor McDonald and Cathal Dunbar. They’re two top-class players who will take plenty of watching and they should be reaching their prime now,” Mullane said in his PaddyPower column.
