Replying To BarneyGrant:  "Makes for an interesting last day for sure. Dublin's only chance now is to beat Galway and not beyond the bounds that your fellas will beat the Cats again. That's more likely than a Dublin win of course but every team will be going out so potential 2019 again.

Dublin Wexford final not completely beyond the bounds of possibility! Not happened since 1961?"
1961 Wow. Too long. Wouldn't it be great to see this year and a good attendance at HQ too

Replying To Doylerwex:  "Kilkenny will be much better next week. We keep beating them which they hate. The injured players have got game time, and if they don't win they could be out of the championship. It's set up to be a cracker.

We were excellent today all over. A massive win and 15 scorers. Four of them off the bench.

We had 6 different lads on the scoreboard after 8 minutes. 2 goals for Mac and could easily have had a third. Also nobody got injured which is important. I can't believe we passed Dublin on score difference. That wasn't even in my head this morning.

People can talk about Munster all they want. Next weekend is the hurling I was raised on and live for. I can't bloody wait."
How will kk be out of the championship if we beat them wont qualify for leinster championship but guaranteed 3rd or am i wrong?

If Dublin and Wexford win then Galway go out, Impossible for Cats to miss third at worst.

Replying To WEXILE:  "Well to answer your question. Today. Thankfully your fear was unfounded. I don't foresee us edging ahead of Dublins scoring difference. Not in a million years"
Didn't foresee

Yes u are right from my calculations .
A loss for us and draw in gal dub puts us out .
A win puts us in leinster final . And a draw In other game would mean kil wex final depending on winning margin too i think gal out
.. a win in other game fir either team is a leinster final for winners . And anything other than win for us puts kilkenny in final . We finish 3rd .
Dub win we lose we in 3rd
Gal win we lose depends on win margins between dub gal and us v kil .
2 draws we in final v kilkenny
Galway will need to go all out for the win same as us and Dublin . kilkenny will always try win but don't think end of world if they did nt . All 4 can reach leinster final all other 3 can go out next Sunday bar killkenny in my calculations bar a pasting from us unlikely scenario
Lot of scenarios really think we are in good position to at least finish 3rd I d have took that at start of champ .
Think management got it right today and attitude of players was spot on . Real positive is different lads different days stepping up to the plate . Could nt be happier with the response since Antrim game.
Roosy done right thing leaving best forwards on for so long build up the score difference and the impact from subs near end put a little more icing on the cake . And could have swung our qualifying percentage up dramatically . Not just happy with the 2 points we really put ourselves in great position for most scenarios.
Looking forward to next Sunday now something special about kilkenny on match day my favourite venue for games but will park on wex side and walk through town soak up atmosphere and enjoy it . We could have been in doldrums after Antrim now we are feeling like we on verge of something .
Huge credit to players and management to turn it around small margins .
WHOOP WHOOP

Wexford have turned a corner I'd be against the cats. What a massive game anyone with a passing interest in hurling needs to travel next Sunday

Great to see Conor MaC back scoring will be great for his confidence. Still one of our most naturally talented players. All the stick and he's still at it. Roll on next week

You are right. Kilkenny cannot finish outside the top 3.

Everything about today was good. Big Wexford crowd and the team were clinical albeit Carlow were so poor.

My prediction is a draw in
Dublin v Galway so
I expect we will need a win next week. Mullen is due back and will be a huge addition. Not impossible but the pain of losing in Belfast could be doubled next week.

Replying To Doylerwex:  "By God that's the best of Mac today again."
He was absolutely great today. He ran out for ball, pressured their backs when they had it, and scored well. The best performance by Mac in such a long time. Hope he watches the game back with Franks and sees just how good a player he still can be!!

They can't be out of the championship unless we give them a heavy beating and Galway and Dublin draw. Not a likely scenario. Can't wait for next weekend either Doyler!

If we both win then it will be the final ok Barney! Hope its not the same result as 61 though if we do play again!!!

Unless it's a draw between you and Galway and we hammer the cats. Can't see it happening though.

In the event of two draws, Dublin don't finish third because of scoring difference. They'll finish third because they'll have 2pts, compared to Galway's 1pt in the Wexford Dublin Galway 'mini-table'.
