Wexford GAA yesterday confirmed the panel has recorded a clean bill.

A Wexford GAA spokesperson said: “Wexford GAA wish to confirm that further testing of our senior hurling panel revealed no positive cases.

“The panel will resume training and will be in a position to fulfil our upcoming fixture against Kilkenny.”
