Replying To Tiger1:  "Just bought 5 ardan de gras tickets ther e now so dont know why you think its sold out they come and go on the mahines so as to try and sell all areas common for all matches.Exspect about 20000 i heard .Offaly had 1500 at u20 last night so should be at least that."
Wexford Gaa posted it themselves. I find it very annoying the way ticketmaster hold back tickets when it comes to bigger games in Croker. Hope your right 20000 would be a great crowd

I've already got tickets but I had a look myself after reading your post earlier, and Ardán de Grás was definitely greyed out on Ticketmaster at that stage, and it wasn't giving the option to select tickets there in the other part of the site either.

But have now just checked again and there are tickets available there now all right. Strange.

The old stand has a much better view than the new one since they put the new roof in. I'd of got the mates to change their tickets!

Id agree with you on the better view. There is always a cracking atmosphere in the new stand however.

What if its raining they would put you out to the sides with no roof cover and they still call that the stand doesnt make sence but aparently its to do with planning permission.For that reason anytime i go there i buy ardan de gras.

Replying To Afinestick96:  "Really hope so! This is the first time since 2019 where Wexford fans can really get behind the team in a Leinster semi final (Covid years 2020 no crowd and 2021 only small crowd allowed in Croker). Id love to here us really get behind the lads. We seen the difference support made to Clare in 2022 the noise was deafening near the end."
It was. It definitely gave their lads a lift!

Wouldn't it be great if we had Jack O Connor and Dee O Keefe to come in off the bench at some stage on Sunday

Only way we can be knocked out completely is if yourselves and Dublin draw and we lose

If Jack is able to start I'd sacrifice Dunbar for him

If Dublin v Galway is a draw and we lose we are out of championship.

To get into Leinster final we need to beat Kilkenny unless we draw with em and your game also is a draw. In that case us and kilkenny progress to Leinster final.

Will we bring our A game to Nowlan Park on Sunday? Hope so. It would be soul destroying if we fall flat and it all goes pear shaped.
The cats will no doubt be razor sharp and will go all out to get revenge for our dominance over them in the last few years.
It will be fast and furious, hard hitting, high scoring,
great individual displays, tactical positioning and a nervous excited crowd. Potentially fascinating.
If the lads go out and play as we did against Galway and Carlow I would give us a 60/40 chance. However if we drift in and out of the game, give them too many frees and if our wide count is high, we will struggle big time.
Big games from Jippo, Mac, Damien, Fanning, Rory and Chin with the rest giving it everything.
I have been flip flopping thinking about who will win this mouthwatering game but based on recent performances I will give Us yellowbellies a hesitant thumbs up.
Wexford to win by 2 points.

Once ye don't draw we are nearly guaranteed 3rd, unless we lose by 9 more than Dublin lose by. If you lose and we lose we are guaranteed 3rd. If both games are drawn we are in a Leinster final.

Really it's a must win.

If we lose we need your game to not be a draw. We've the head to head on you and superior scoring difference to Dublin so we're in a good place but we want to be in the Leinster final.

Gonna be raining on Sunday more than likely. Hope it doesn't have any influence on our game. I remember trying to run the ball out in games during the league and fumbling with the ball a lot especially the Carlow game. Even during the Carlow game a few.times I thought we made hard work of running the ball out and breaking tackles and that was in good weather, hope the slippy ball doesn't kill us. I'd imagine Kilkenny will go more direct when playing out from the back

Actually quare excited lads. Rossi will be an instant success if we can get a result.

Kilkenny are so dangerous but we just need to throw everything at them.

If both teams show up like the last two games I'd be very confident. Kilkenny are Kilkenny though.

Either way we're in a very good position to get another championship match at least.

Team named pretty much the same as last week but with Cian Byrne and Jack O Connor on bench. No Dee O'Keefe. I'd imagine byrne will start and maybe Dee will be added to match day squad

Kilkenny have named their team, Mullen is on the bench but if he's fit enough for that he's probably fit enough to start. Expect him to start on Sunday.
