Even a cheeky Kilkenny fan in the stands couldn't prevent their loss to Wexford

It looked, for all money, that the young pup attempt to hook O'Keeffe's hurl as he took his cut but was unsuccessful.

Wexford were just too good on the day and will now seriously back themselves against any and every county in the land.

And... Davy is back.
