Two Wexford Hurlers Named On’s Hurling Team Of The Week

Wexford agonizingly lost out to Cork last weekend…

The Wexford Senior hurlers were ahead for all of the game up until the 71st minute when Cork’s late substitute, Cormac Beausang, pulled on a ball into James Lawlor’s net to put the Rebels in front in the dying moments.

Although Wexford will be disappointed not to come away with the win from Pairc Ui Chaoimh, some pride has been restored following their thrashing by Clare two weeks ago.

One Wexford player that stood up when needed was Simon Donohoe who scored two points from the corner-back position. Donohoe’s performance was not up to scratch against Clare, so Wexford supporters will be delighted with his response.

Another player who was a revelation for the Wexford Senior hurlers against Cork was Lee Chin. Only back from injury, Chin scored nine points in the game, with four coming from play.

One player who may count himself unlucky not to be named on the team was Matthew O’Hanlon. O’Hanlon was dominating the full-back position until he was substituted due to injury; O’Hanlon’s absence from the full-back position turned the game in Cork’s favour.

The full team can be viewed below.
