Wexford win as a Billy Byrne goal separates the two great Leinster rivals

Although only a goal separated Wexford from Kilkenny at the end the Yellow Bellies were the far better team on the day. Neither John Power or DJ Carey were fully fit for Kilkenny who gave championship starts to five players.

Wexford led by 4 points in the 59th minute when Billy Byrne got on the end of a long ball from Adrian Fenlon and scored the only goal of the game. Although Kilkenny narrowed the margin with a run of points they could not close the gap.

The final score was Wexford 1-14 Kilkenny 0-14
