Wexford will see this as their best ever chance to get one over their old foes, and finally get that long awaited win over the Boys in Blue.

Sunday kicks off with the wee ball, as Galway play Kilkenny in the Leinster championship. Galway footballers got a huge win last weekend over Mayo, so the hurlers will now be looking to let the good times continue for the tribesmen.

The All-Ireland champions are up next, live on BBC, and they face a stern test against a Derry side that has gone from strength to strength under Rory Gallagher.
