Clare To Be Given Major Boost Ahead Of Wexford Allianz League Clash

The Wexford Senior hurlers take on Clare this weekend in Wexford Park…

Neither the Wexford team nor the Clare team have been officially named yet, but reports coming from Clare suggest that they are to be handed a major boost ahead of the next Allianz League clash.

The Clare pair of Tony Kelly and John Conlon are expected to return to the fray against Darragh Egan’s charges this weekend. The two All-Ireland winners are central to Clare’s team; Conlon has been a revelation in the centre-back position in recent years, while Tony Kelly is no doubt one of the best hurlers of this generation, with Shaun Murphy stating that he’s the toughest player he’s ever marked.

For Wexford, they are set to be without Richie Lawlor, Lee Chin, and full-back Liam Ryan.

One boost, however, for Wexford is the returning Matthew O’Hanlon, who is expected to be named on the panel for this week’s clash against Clare.

Darragh Egan recently told RTE that the aim for Lee Chin will be the Championship, although he still may get some game-time should his preparations go well for the Faythe Harriers club-man after picking up a hamstring injury against Westmeath.

In their previous games, Wexford lost to Galway in the opening round – and then they followed up that loss with an away win against Westmeath in Mullingar.
