Wanderers make short trip for derby

Wexford Wanderers will travel to New Ross on Sunday for the all-important Provincial Towns Cup opening round fixture against New Ross.

To those in the know the Provincial Towns Cup is the Holy Grail of provincial rugby in rural Leinster and this year is in its 90th season. Over the years both sides have met on numerous occasions in this and league competitions and last season the winds of fortune certainly blew in favour of Ross with a clean sweep in both the league (which they incidentally won) and the meeting of the sides in the Towns Plate.

However, at the start of the current season Wanderers managed to beat New Ross in the South-East League so this tie will certainly be one of the ones to watch in the opening round.

Kick-off is scheduled for 2.30 p.m. and your support for what should be a cracking game will be appreciated.
