UNA LEACY’S LAST minute goal was Wexford’s saving grace last week and has afforded Helena Jacob’s side another chance at reaching the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie decider on September 14.

Cork were the better of the two in Thurles last weekend with Angela Walsh causing problems for the Wexford defence while Orla Cotter and Katriona Mackey were the chief scorers in a tight competitive affair.

This weekend, Paudie Murray has named a side that is particularly strong down the centre with Anna Geary at full-back, Gemma O’Connor at centre, Rena Buckley and Aisling Thompson in midfield and Orla Cotter lining out as full-forward.

Wexford won’t want to repeat the opportunities they spurned last Saturday and will be relying on Kate Kelly, Katrina Parrock , and Ursula Jacob to capitalise.

Josie Dwyer and Shelley Kehoe are named at midfield and much will depend also on the performance of Mary Leacy at centre-back and Fiona Kavanagh at centre-forward. T

he advantage may be with Wexford for Saturday’s replay, having snatched a draw at the last second, but don’t be surprised if extra-time is required to separate the sides.

Verdict: Wexford.

Throw in today is 2.30pm in Walsh Park, Waterford.
