Longford's Nigel Rabbitte and Colm P. Smith close in on Meath's Niall Hickey during the O'Byrne Cup clash at Ashbourne

The Meath team to face Wexford in the O'Byrne Cup at St Patrick's Park, Enniscorthy today has been released.

It shows only three players from the side which started the 0-9 to 1-5 defeat to Longford three weeks ago - Gavin McCoy, Niall Hickey and Graham Reilly.

The Royals ran out 14-point winners over Laois to get their campaign off to a perfect start before losing to the Midlanders in Ashbourne. However, manager Andy McEntee had opted to field a stronger 15 for the Sean Cox Fundraiser SF Challenge match against Dublin the following day.

Meath (O'Byrne Cup v Wexford): Andrew Colgan; Seamus Lavin, Conor McGill, Ronan Ryan; Gavin McCoy, Donal Keogan, Niall Kane; Bryan Menton, Adam Flanagan; Ethan Devine, Darragh Campion, Niall Hickey; Graham Reilly, Michael Newman, Thomas O'Reilly.
