The Wexford v Kilkenny match will take place this weekend…
Wexford Senior hurling manager, Darragh Egan, has named his side for the crucial clash.
Interestingly, Dee O’Keeffe regains his starting place. Despite that, Kevin Foley has also been named on the starting fifteen. It’s interesting as both players have played the sweeper role in recent times for Wexford. One could imagine that Foley will be sweeping, while O’Keeffe will play as a roaming midfielder.
Conor McDonald holds onto his position at the full forward line, despite running out of favour in previous Championship games. He scored 2-02 against Westmeath and Wexford will be hoping that he’ll be able to do similar against Kilkenny.
The glaring omission from the team is co-captain Damien Reck, who has not been named on the pane whatsoever, as he battles an injury.
The game is being dubbed one of the biggest Wexford hurling games since 1996. As we’re all aware by now, a loss against favourites Kilkenny could see Wexford relegated to the Joe McDonagh Cup.
The Wexford Senior Hurlers play Kilkenny in Chadwicks Wexford Park at 2:00pm on Sunday in the final round of the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship. Entry is by ticket only and tickets are available to purchase online here or from participating SuperValu and Centra stores.
