Wexford v Kilkenny takes place on Sunday at 2.00pm in the Division 1b Hurling League. The game is in Wexford Park. We have a preview, team news and betting information below. If you can’t make the game be sure to check out of live scores from the below link.
Wexford come into this game on the back of 1 win and 1 loss from their two games. They hammered Laois in the opening round 2-27 to 2-16 in late January. However, 2 weeks ago suffered a loss to Clare 0-18 to 0-15 at Wexford Park. Davy Fitzgerald would have wanted the win there but this is a big game. Players like Conor McDonald, Diarmuid O’Keeffe and Liam Ryan will look to have big games.
Kilkenny come into this game on the back of 2 wins from 2 games in the division. They hammered Carlow last time out by 3-21 to 0-09. Players like Colin Fennelly, Paddy Deegan and Ger Aylward will be key players if the Cats are to come out on top.
Wexford: Mark Fanning,Joe O’Connor, Liam Ryan, Shane Reck; Damien Reck, Pádraig Foley , Shaun Murphy; Liam Óg McGovern , Kevin Foley; Aidan Rochford, Rory O’Connor , Jack O’Connor Cathal Dunbar, Conor McDonald , Paul Morris
Not much to separate the sides in the betting. Wexford won the last two meeting between the sides. They hammered the Cats in the Walsh Cup and also beat them in the Leinster Final in 2019. I fancy Wexford to win on home soil at 11/10. Wexford v Kilkenny will be deferred on TG4 on Sunday after the Galway v Tipperary game.
