Kilkenny will face Wexford in Nowlan Park this Sunday afternoon at 3pm.
The game was called off last weekend due to covid cases in the Wexford squad, it was then refixed for Sunday subject to getting the all-clear from the HSE yesterday.
Wexford tweeted yesterday that they were good to go for Sunday but there had been no official confirmation of the fixtures until Friday afternoon.
It’s understood that the Kilkenny panel was to be tested today following a report of a player in the Kilkenny camp getting Covid-19.
The refixed third-round fixture will now take place as scheduled for Sunday afternoon at 3pm, live in full on air on KCLR and Scoreline.
The GAA’s postponement policy on Allianz League games is as follows:
Where a County is unable to fulfill a fixture due to issues related to Covid, the game will be awarded to the opposing team (walkover), but without any further penalty being imposed. The exceptions to this are:
– Where there is a clear 13 days between the original fixture and the next scheduled round of the competition or
– Any game where relegation would be a direct consequence of the walkover.
If it goes ahead, we have live commentary of the game here on Sunday with thanks to Laharts in Kilkenny.
