Wexford hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald feels that calling off his side's clash with Kilkenny was the right thing to do.

The Allianz League game was one of three to fall victim to the weather, with certain parts of the pitch at Innovate Wexford Park covered in surface water, forcing referee Alan Kelly to call off the game.

"When I walked the pitch I knew it would be called off," Fitzgerald told RTÉ Sport.

"I could see the surface water, 100% it was the right thing to do.

The game is expected to be played next weekend.

"There are very few weekends free between here and the end of March if you want to get the club fixtures started in April. It's going to be week after week. This is a break anyway so it's grand.

Fitzgerald also revealed that he had expected there to be disruptions to the fixtures after last year's snow played havoc with the calendar.

"I had factored in a week like last year if I am being honest so our preparations are good"

After the match was officially  postponed Fitzgerald brought his Wexford players for a "light jog". 

"The players are very disappointed they were really up for this, they were really looking forward to it so it's disappointing for them."
