2022 Wexford Intercounty Hurling

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


The talking point now should be what about next year? I believe the prospects are very good. If we didn't have so many of our key players crocked up during that Clare game,then I am convinced we would have won. How could we carve out a victory without Rory, Okeeffe, Chin on one leg after half time and the powerful influence of the two Recks later in the game. We beat Kilkenny in the round Robin and we all saw the trimming the cats gave to Clare. We quite simply ran out of gas in the quarter final and had not got quality replacements.
The introduction of some of the lads from the u20 side will no doubt strengthen the panel no end and will give Darragh plenty of options going forward.
Maybe some players will impress during the club championship that were overlooked before.
We are not far behind and I am already looking forward to next year with a degree of confidence.

"The Sunday Game done some analysis on Mikie Bulter's job on Tony Kelly.......Shane Reck done the same..."

I replied to the above post stating the fact that Reck did not do the same, Butler kept Kelly scoreless."
Think injury kept Kelly scoreless the last day tbh CC

If Kelly was injured, why was there no mention of this in all the match reports I read, and why was he on the pitch for 70 minutes?

Did you not watch the game? I'm sure it was on TV? His movement wasn't what it has been all year. Tbh I didn't think he was 100% against us either. Apparently he was getting injections for the ankle before our game and the game against yourselves. I'm not running down Mikey Butler by saying that. I think he deserves an All star unless he gets roasted in the next game. That's pretty good for a debutant!

I watched the game on Sky. J. J. Delaney and Jamesie O'Connor made him (Butler) their 'man of the match'. A bit odd don't you think, giving that award to someone who marked an injured player all match? Then again, what would they know.

Where did you see this? Purely as a spectator always prefer daytime games but can understand how players would like to have Sunday's for themselves, I actually like Saturday afternoon games but understand doesn't suit alot of people with work.

Just to clarify I am aware lights are planned for early next year just wasn't aware of a specific fixture.

Was mentioned in a recent bulletin from a County Board meeting:

It doesn't actually specify Kilkenny and Walsh Cup, but definitely says January 2023, and so a match v Kilkenny would probably be the obvious fixture to aim for.

I heard it from within the camp.

They're expecting a decent turn out for it too.

I'm looking forward to it but I do think evening games are a little better suited to the big ball

Ah cool, as Pikeman said probably the obvious opponent for what's an historic game for the venue, I think the novelty will bring a larger than normal crowd for a Walsh Cup game, the encounter this year attracted about 3 thousand I think.

From watching Fitzgibbon games floodlit hurling works well.

Maybe there was just remember that around the time, that attendance might not have factored in u16s too.

Often wondered that myself. I'd bring the 4 kids but there doesn't ever seem to be anyone counting them.

I actually asked about that once, and was told that the attendance counter/tracker thing in Wexford Park counts the total number of clicks for each turnstile.

A click is a click whether it's an adult, child, student or OAP going through the turnstile, so it counts the total attendance all right. Apart of course from those who go through the gate the back of the main stand which doesn't have a turnstile - typically players, team management and backroom staff, officials, and maybe some people with certain sorts of passes.

We had Kilkenny at home this year in the Walsh cup surely we will be away to them next year. Home and away as far as I am aware is by competition
