Same again for Wexford

Wexford manager Seamus Murphy has named an unchanged side for tomorrow's rearranged Allianz NHL Division 1A clash with All-Ireland champions Cork (Wexford Park, throw-in 3.30pm).

Wexford manager Seamus Murphy has named an unchanged side for tomorrow's rearranged Allianz NHL Division 1A clash with All-Ireland champions Cork (Wexford Park, throw-in 3.30pm).

The game, scheduled for last Sunday, was called off due to a waterlogged pitch, meaning Declan Ruth's return from a hamstring problem was delayed.

Rapparees/Starlights clubman Ruth, who turns 30 later this month, comes in at centre back, replacing the suspended Tomás 'Mossy' Mahon.

The second change from Wexford's last league outing, a 0-12 to 1-10 defeat to Offaly on March 11, sees Oulart's Stephen Doyle take over at left half-forward from the injured PJ Nolan (shoulder).

Corner back Keith Rossiter captains the team.

Meanwhile, Rory McCarthy, an AllStar wing forward in 1996, is expected back in the country shortly.

The St Martin's marksman went on a trip around the world following his wedding last autumn.

McCarthy could help liven up the Modelmen's attack ahead of their Leinster SHC semi-final against either Laois or Offaly on June 11.

WEXFORD (NHL v Cork): D Fitzhenry; D O’Connor, D Ryan, K Rossiter (capt); M Travers, D Ruth, C Kenny; D Stamp, D Lyng; M Jacob, E Quigley, S Doyle; R Jacob, MJ Furlong, D Mythen.
