Wexford C.B.S......10  Carnew VC....12
Wexford continued their warm up for the McMullen Cup with a game against Carnew VC on Friday last. It was a game that tested the Wexford defence as we had to play without the ball for most of the first half. Our defence held up to the constant barrage of attacks, only been breached on one occasion. Trailing 5-0 at the break and with the wind at our backs, it seemed that we should enjoy the  territorial advantage in the second half.
This proved to be more difficult than expected as we failed to use the elements wisely, instead we persisted with a handling game which did not meet our needs.
Our first venture into the opposing 22, led to a try from Chris Vickery. Our second and only other incursion into that part of the field led to another try , this time from full back Darragh Rossiter.
This looked to be enough, but a try in the corner in the final play led to a score which they duly converted to take the honours.
We now play Colaiste Mhaintain, Wicklow in the McMullen Cup on Wednesday next in Wexford at 1pm.
