Two Wexford senior hurlers have tested positive for Covid-19 with the county due to face Kilkenny in an Allianz National Hurling League clash on Sunday.

The two players played a part in Wexford's victory over Clare at the weekend, according to the Irish Examiner.

However, it is unclear whether the players concerned had taken Covid tests prior to the game.

Wexford county chairman Micheal Martin told South East Radio that two players have tested positive, adding that they are following HSE protocols.

“I don’t think we’re overly concerned beyond that at this moment in time,” Mr Martin said.

“This is probably something we’re going to have to get used to throughout the summer. As society opens up, there will be isolated cases and I’m led to believe there were a number of counties last week in the lead-up to matches who had isolated cases."

“We will encourage all players to err on the side of caution, to be tested, so that we have a clearer picture of where things are at. That’s just to be cautious about it.”

The entire senior panel took Covid tests on Tuesday evening, with at least 20 negative results so far.

It is understood that the two positive cases were the result of isolated incidents, and not related to the squad.
