Davy Fitzgerald’s side will take on the Dubs at Croke Park on Saturday.

STAR FORWARD RORY O’Connor has been named to start in the Wexford side who will face Dublin in the Allianz Hurling League at Croke Park on Saturday [throw-in, 5pm].

The St Martin’s player has been named to start at corner forward, while influential midfielder Diarmuid O’Keeffe has also been included in the line-up.

Paul Morris is named in the Wexford attack after hitting seven points in their victory over Kilkenny last weekend.

Lee Chin has been omitted from the starting team once again, while Conor McDonald also misses out.

Meanwhile, Mattie Kenny has announced the Dublin team that will take to the field in Croke Park tomorrow evening. He makes three changes from the side who overcame Carlow.
