Dublin vs Wexford preview & live score commentary in the Leinster Minor Hurling Championship, Parnell Park, Saturday, 2pm
Defending provincial champions, Dublin, will face Wexford in Parnell Park on Saturday, in a bid to successfully retain their Leinster crown.
Cian O’ Callaghan has been named captain of the side, with the Cuala man looking to put his experience to use after lasy year’s exploits that saw him reach the All-Ireland final.
Na Fianna’s Conor McHugh, the Dubs’ starting forward last year, now anchors the midfield, while Lucan Sarsfield’s Sean McClelland plays in his third consecutive minor campaign. Last year’s top scorer for the Boys in Blue, Cormac Costello of Whitehall Colmcille, will start at left corner-forward.
Wexford will be wary of the threat posed by Dublin as they look to make their mark in the Championship this year and are heading in to the match in good stead.
There are no fresh injury doubts for the Model county and Liam Griffin’s men will be rightly looking to take a big scalp but it may be too much against the defending Leinster champions, who will not want to relinquish their crown so readily.
DUBLIN : Cian Mac Gabhann; Ross Tierney, Cian O’Callaghan, Sean McClelland; Tom Devlin, Robert Murphy, Eoghan O’Donnell; Conor McHugh, Sean Treacy; Cian Boland, Kevin Flynn, Paul Winters; Oisin O’Rorke, James Roche, Cormac Costello.
