WEXFORD MANAGER JJ Doyle has made one change to his starting team for tomorrow’s Bord Gáis Energy All-Ireland U21 hurling semi-final against Antrim.

Doyle has reported no further injuries ahead of their first game since the 17 point hammering of Kilkenny in the Leinster final last month, as Tony French comes into midfield to replace Gavin Bailey

Conor McDonald will once again be the man to watch after his stunning 1-10 in the Leinster final, while Cathal Dunbar retains his place in the corner, he scored 1-1 against the Cats after coming off the bench the previous day against Offaly.

Wexford are heavy favourites to book their place in the decider against either Limerick or Galway, who meet in tomorrow’s second semi-final at Semple Stadium.
