Wexford boss Liam Dunne has named his starting XV for this weekend's Leinster hurling quarter-final clash with Antrim.

Right corner back Liam Ryan from the Rapparees club makes his debut for the Model County.

Ryan is one of three Wexford U21s in the team, with Jack Guiney and Conor McDonald the other two but the Wexford starting team contains just three players from the side that won the Leinster U21 Hurling Championship last July, namely Lee Chin and Messrs McDonald and Guiney.

Only eight players that started in Wexford's All-Ireland Championship Phase 3 Qualifier defeat to Clare last summer survive to start this weekend.

They are Mark Fanning, Keith Rossiter, Ciarán Kenny, Paul Morris, Jack Guiney, Rory Jacob, Andrew Shore and Podge Doran.

WEXFORD (SH v Antrim): M Fanning; L Ryan, M O'Hanlon, K Rossiter; L Chin, A Shore, C Kenny; D O'Keeffe, H Kehoe; P Morris, P Doran, J Guiney; R Jacob, C McDonald, L Óg McGovern.
