Pundit Cyril Farrell has made his prediction for Saturday’s highly-anticipated clash…
Cyril Farrell was speaking to the lads over at The Hurling Podcast recently, where he tipped the Yellowbellies to come out on top against Galway on Saturday:
“I just have a feeling that Wexford will win it. They are a bit more ready. Galway are a bit unsettled — and if I think if those injuries are true, and I think they are, these boys are on the team. They have done it on the big day and when you’re missing them, they’re a big loss.”
“It won’t affect them in the sense that, even if they get beaten, they’ll be still very dangerous in the Backdoor. I’ve a feeling that the fitness of Wexford might just get them over the line, because knowing Davy, he’ll have a hell of a lot of work done.”
They were very unlucky last year. Tipp went onto win the All-Ireland, but if you looked at that match again [Wex-Tipp semi-final], Wexford were unlucky. That could have gone Wexford’s way. They’ve been around now. This is a big year for them. This is the culmination of all the few years that Davy has been there. I’ve a feeling that this could be his year — and he thinks that himself too, so that’s a big plus,” he said to The Hurling Podcast.
Wexford will be facing Galway in Croke Park on Halloween night, with throw-in at 6:15pm. The match will be broadcasted live on RTE this Saturday evening.
