Waterford's McGrath Cup clash with Clare at Walsh Park has been postponed as the Déise are unable to field a team.

"Sunday’s McGrath Cup Football Group A match between Waterford and Clare has been postponed," Munster GAA said.

"Waterford are unable to field a team due to a number of Covid cases and close contacts as well as a number of injuries."

The match was due to be Waterford manager Ephie Fitzgerald’s first in charge since replacing the outgoing Shane Ronayne in October.

They will now have to wait until their 11 January clash with Cork in Group A with the Rebels meeting Clare in between.
