Nice fella, Wexford's half-forward Paul Morris. Gifted, but not entirely sure what to do with the gift. How to fully step up to the plate. He kept putting himself out there. Kept putting on the boots. Kept the wrists moving.

Eventually someone called time and he was ready. Ready to fail. And he did.

In the dying moments of normal time against Clare in Cusack Park he had a chance to win the game for Wexford. He didn't fully believe in himself so he passed the buck. Gareth Sinnott shot wide and the replay was set up.
