The rescheduled Allianz Hurling League Division 1 fixture between Kilkenny and Wexford will go ahead on Sunday after the Kilkenny squad returned negative Covid-19 tests.

One Kilkenny player tested positive for Covid-19 earlier in the week and will miss the game, but the rest of the squad have been cleared to play.

Croke Park have confirmed to RTÉ Sport that the game will proceed as planned at Nowlan Park, with a 3pm throw-in.

On Thursday, Wexford confirmed their hurling panel have no new cases of Covid-19 and would be able to play the game, which was postponed from Sunday last after three Wexford players tested positive over the course of the proceeding week.

Controversy then erupted when two players from Clare - who had played Wexford on 16 May - were listed as close contacts of the Model men they had marked and missed the Banner's win over Laois.

Clare manager Brian Lohan and his county board have been in a war of words with Wexford over how the HSE came to decide that his players were close rather than casual contacts.
