Boland back from injury as Dublin pick 7 senior players in U21 team to face Wexford
Throw-in tomorrow night at Innovate Wexford Park is 7.30pm.

SENIOR PLAYER CIAN Boland has recovered from injury to start for the Dublin U21 hurlers tomorrow night in their Bord Gáis Energy Leinster quarter-final against Wexford.

Boland, who featured for the Dublin senior side in last summer’s championship, has missed this spring’s Allianz hurling league campaign.

But he has been named at left half-forward for tomorrow night’s game at Innovate Wexford Park against a Wexford team who are chasing a fourth successive provincial U21 hurling title this year.

Boland is joined in the starting side by six other players who are currently part of Ger Cunningham’s Dublin senior squad.

They are full-back Cian MacGabhann, corner-back Eoghan O’Donnell, centre-back Shane Barrett, wing-back James Madden, centre-forward Sean Treacy and full-forward Chris Bennett.

O’Donnell and Barrett, who captains the team, both started for the Dublin senior side in their recent Leinster quarter-final win over Wexford. Bennett came on as a substitute in that game.
