WEXFORD HURLER JACK Guiney has been dropped from the senior panel for their Leinster Championship semi-final against Kilkenny on Sunday after an alleged breach of discipline.

The 22-year-old was one of the stars of Wexford’s National League campaign, scoring 2-26 from five league games and is an integral part of the Slaneysiders’ team.

Following the Leinster quarter-final victory over Westmeath, Guiney was allowed to attend a family christening with the full knowledge of the Wexford management team according to local newspaper the Wexford People.

The paper reported that Guiney attended training on the Tuesday after the Westmeath game, but was excused from the Thursday night session, where the management informed the rest of the squad that the Rathnure forward would not be part of the Saturday morning extended session.

Guiney was the hero for Wexford last summer as he plundered 10 points after being summoned from the bench in their victory over Clare in the qualifiers.

The loss of Guiney to the squad is a major blow ahead of the Slaneysiders’ clash with Kilkenny this Sunday in Nowlan Park.
