Former Wexford hurler, Andrew Shore, was the most recent guest on The Wexford Hurling Podcast…
Speaking to hosts Ben Bernie and Garry Doran, the former Wexford wing-back outlined his biggest concern about the current Wexford Senior hurling set-up.
Concerns were raised following Clare’s trashing of Wexford in the Allianz League last weekend.
Speaking on The Wexford Hurling Podcast, Shore stated:
“My biggest concern is that there doesn’t seem to be any game-plan. There doesn’t seem to be any moves, there doesn’t seem to be anything for a puckout. When you’re getting really badly bet, something has to change.”
“It just looks like there wasn’t a change there, or there wasn’t a different angle to be had on the pitch. When you have leaders 1-30 would know everyone’s job. It looked like noone really had a specific job on the pitch – and that’s a worry.”
“Leaders dictate the speed of the game, the aggression. You’d hear a ‘well done’ from a leader and that feeds through the team. That wasn’t there. That’s where Matthew, Lee, or Liam Ryan come in,” he said.
Shore also stated that although Wexford’s result will “not be forgotten about,” it may give them “a bit of a springboard” going into the next few games and in turn, in to the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship, highlighting that it’s not “all doom and gloom.”
Wexford will need to up their game for the remaining two Allianz League games, where they’ll take on Limerick and Cork away. Wexford’s Allianz Hurling League fixtures can be found here.
