I knew it was a common trait in our game, but I looked back at the scoring stats across our six games so far, and our backs have collectively scored twenty points from play. That is insane, and could be the difference if the game is tight, considering Clare wouldn't have the same output from back there. In fact, the only side to have had such a scoring ratio from their defence is Limerick, who hit 6 from play from that sector vs. Cork alone.

As for the game itself, I would presume Damien Reck will pick up Kelly. If his brother was fully fit, he'd be the designated marker but considering he has so little hurling under his belt up to now, Damien will have the unenviable task, although I would hope he has a license to burst forward whenever he can. I would put MOH on David Fitzgerald who has added a scoring touch to his towering frame. MOH will be able for him physically. I'd maybe throw Paudie onto Shane O'Donnell, and provided Duggan is suspended, Jippo can go on Ryan Taylor. I hope Dee O'Keeffe is fully fit as I'd have him follow Galvin everywhere- the latter does a lot of untold work for the Banner.

At the other end, instead of trying to match Conlon in the air with a Jacko or Chin, I'd actually place Mogie on him and test his defensive acumen. He is a converted centre-back after all and Mogie seems to win a few frees in every game. Jacko can battle it out with McInerney (who seems to take the bigger men on the opposition)- that could bring fireworks as both players are fiery.

It's meant to be a continuation of the warm weather (although who knows with Met Eireann), so I'd like us to let the ball do the work occasionally- it'll be nigh-on impossible to play the running game for the entire 70-odd minutes. Our freetaking and general shooting must be in the 90+ percentile if we are to stand a chance. But do you know what? I have seen so many teams put in a monumental shift one day and be flat the next (a familiar trait with us unfortunately), and I am banking on us to be fresher if it is in the balance down the home straight. There is no side-show this year either which always helps.

Up Wexford.

Good to see the 2 Clare lads got off. I don't think retrospective punishment should happen unless the victim is injured or in cases of simulation fooling the on field ref. At least now if we beat them they can't complain that everyone is out to get them. The 2 lads, and Fahy, got off with stonewall red cards on a technicality. Maybe they will stop whinging about Derek Kent now also.
Looking forward to seeing some mighty match ups. Rory on Rory, Mac on Cleary, Ryan on Duggan. Hopefully both teams are up for it and we get a cracker. And more importantly hopefully we win!!!! And if its a nice dry day that will be good for me n the 4 kids as well!!!!

105 is between the 45 and 65 at the Killinan end. Great seats!

Extract from Davy's column this week.

"Last year's qualifier game was played on a scorching day in Thurles and, given the sweltering conditions, I decided to cut the Wexford warm-up in half. It was a massive mistake on my behalf.

The match was 10 or 15 minutes old before we'd broken our wind, something that the warm-up would normally take care off. I was looking out on the field at Wexford players struggling to catch their breath and before we knew it we were 11 points down.

But once we got that second wind, we dominated the rest of the match and only a soft goal conceded at the death was the difference in the end"

So the 2 clare lads got off on a technicality.
Why am i not surprised. Fahy of Galway will also play on Saturday.
From a Wexford point of view its better we beat them with a full deck.
Can't wait for this game and I'm sure our guys are ready and are going to give it everything.

The Central Hearings Committee overturned it on a procedural technicality raised by Galway.

Rennick made a mark in the GAA's disciplinary affairs with a devastating minority opinion in the authority's clearing of Dublin's Diarmuid Connolly before the 2015 All-Ireland semi-final replay against Mayo.

It will be interesting to see if Henry will play Fahy after the stamp on Richie Ried which has no place in the game, whatever about the two Clare incidents, at least the Clare lads were trying to break free from their markers.

You don't break free from a marker by flacking the back off a lad, or giving him a but of the hurl in the face. But it was as clear as day they wouldn't be suspended. Once TSG highlighted these, the poor old "not that kind of player" or "we're being victimised" brigade came out in force.
But, Wexford are as well off. Clare can have no excuses now if Wexford turn them over. Clare love a "poor old us" mentality as any who remembers the 90's can attest.

I am glad that Clare have a full compliment to play us.
They have no "them against us" or "we have been wronged" narrative to get their lads super motivated.
I do genuinely want Wexford to beat a full Clare team, so there's no excuses on either side.

As an aside, there's something wrong with the system when incidents like this happen, which are red cards and players get off.
It sends the wrong message to everybody that you can get away with breaking the rules.
This is not the ref's/umpires fault for missing the incidents because the game is so fast and there's so many moving parts.
This is not RTE/Sunday games fault either because they have the "technology" and "time" to do the video analysis that highlights the red card incidents.

However, it is the GAA's fault that there isn't a citing/review mechanism that does not have any technical loopholes.
Rugby has it, so why can't the GAA have similar?
In a era, where the GAA have got so much right ... it is glaring issue that happens nearly every year and it should be tidied up.


Finally, I do believe Wexford can beat Clare ... I think the longer Wexford are in the game, the better for Wexford.
Subs coming in will make a difference. And this year, like never before, we have developed a subs bench.
Wexford by 2.
Up Wexford!

As a Wexford lad living in Clare, I love their fanatical supporters but im very surprised to hear lots in Clare are so confident / arrogant that they're not going to the match on Saturday instead are waiting for the Semi final with some even waiting for the final against Limerick ha!
I have my Wexford flag proudly on display here in Clare since the first round of the Championship. I think we'll bring a massive 'purple and gold' army to Thurles and here's hoping for a great game.. Sure we're only going up to make up the numbers anyhow, by all accounts ;)
