Seamus Callanan misses one-on-one penalty but Tipperary still prevail over Wexford

Substitute Callanan was denied by Wexford netminder Niall Breen in the second half as firm evidence emerged that not even a tweak to the rules, as proposed by the Hurling 2020 review committee, will guarantee a desired result for the striker.

Goals in either half from David Butler and Conor Kenny paved the way for Tipp’s victory.
