It will be very disappointing if that turns out to be the case again. People not involved in Feile need to get out and support the lads. The Clare support played a huge role in swinging the game for them 2 years ago

Kilkenny are able to beat them why not us?

Agreed, we really need Clare to have a very bad day plus ourselves have to produce one for the ages

Replying To Purpleandgold72:  "No one here is blaming Clare. Wex Co Board contacted Croke park about this 3 weeks ago. It's just very unfortunate for a lot of people who can't either attend or watch the game now on Saturday."
Is it true that Clare voted against the switch?

You lost me at 6 better forwards made. 2 tops. Their defence isn't great either.

To me it looks as if you're talking about reputations and not actual ability.

Provided we have a referee that can spot off-the-ball pulling and dragging I'd actually fancy Mac to have a field day against Cleary, who I think can be got at. I'd put ROC on Conlon with instructions to blitz him every chance he gets, and I'd man Chin on Ryan to keep him penned into his own half (good for a point or two a game going forward). Press Quilligan every chance we get, he looks a bag of nerves.

Fitzgerald is the big worry around the middle, need to have someone follow him everywhere, empty the tank and bring in fresh legs for last 20 mins. Plenty of options there thankfully.

I'd nearly be inclined to station a 'plus one' in the ground in front of O'Donnell (with Shane Reck directly marking him), maybe Conor Hearne playing deeper with Charlie dropping into midfield to work his arse off. To me, Duggan is their next most important forward, and O'Hanlon looks like the man to take him. If TK starts, see how Eoin Ryan shapes up on him, definitely has the credentials. Damien on Rogers.

Excitement is building though.

I don't normally agree with you because you are always oh so negative but you make some valid comments today and reluctantly I think you are on the ball with most of them.
True to say though it's 15 on 15 and if we can bring that Wexford " never say die " passion to Thurles then we should be capable of giving them a right good rattle.

That's the spirit!

From a neutral I'd give wexford a great shout. The first 15 mins will be very important.

As usual good post Doyler. They are very worried about Mac, Lee and Rory. Cian too. And rightly so, we have forwards who can score. What we will need from them all is workrate off the ball to match their scoring ability. Then I think we have a great chance.
In fairness to the Clare supporters nearly all of them aren't assuming they will beat us.

We are sweating on a few players too and we will need em all. No one knows if Lawlor is injured or rested, no idea if Jack O. Conor, Ryan, O'Keefe can play any part plus a slight concern with Chins calf.

Not hearing of any major injury in Clare camp. For.us to win we'll need everything to go our way.

We'll give em.a right rattle alright ai wouldn't worry about that but it's time to start winning our share of these games

Are you saying only 2 Clare forwards would make the starting Wexford forward unit?

I've never seen a year like it impossible to get any update on injuries . It's good that not a lot is getting out of the camp but at the same time frustrating as a supporter !

Ryan Taylor is as major as it gets. Best Clare player on the pitch when we lost to them in 2022.

They will put out the better seats later. So far they have been selling off the corners of the stands pretty much.

Doubt it LRH. But if you take TK out and put him midfield,you would probably go-

Davy Fitz, Chin, Duggan
Rory, Mac, SOD

on current form, assuming Fitz gets back to full form, and basing it on having a big half forward line to win ball.
That front 6 would trouble any combination of 2 county's 6 backs.

Rory o connor Lee Chin Conor Mcdonald all make a combined best 6 forwards for me right now. I'd then have Rodgers O Donnell and Fitzgerald.
