Wexford's star attacker Jack Guiney has been ruled out of his side opening Allianz National Hurling League Division 1B game with Limerick this Saturday evening. 

Although named in the original team at full-forward early on Thursday, Guiney pulled up in training later that evening with a hamstring injury.

The Rathnure clubman was looking forward to his first competitive game since last year’s provincial championship win over Westmeath, but Manager Dunne has said the injury sustained makes him unavailable.

 Dunne said: ‘Jack pulled up in training on Tuesday evening with a hamstring problem. The injury is bad enough to rule him out of this evening’s game. 

'We are having an x-ray but will not know the long term until we get those results. Hopefully the tear is not too bad.’

 The absence of the Rathnure clubman means Dunne will now be without four first choice attackers for he joins Conor McDonbald (broken thumb), Paul Morris (hamstring) and Shane Tomkins (calf muscle tear) on the sideline, while defender Diarmuid O’Keeffe is another absentee recovering from concussion received in a challenge game against Tipperary.

Wexford: M Fanning; L Ryan, M O’Hanlon, J Breen; A Kenny, A Shore,  P Foley, L Chin, H Kehoe; L Og McGovern, A Nolan, I Byrne; C Dunbar, A N Other, D Dunne.
