Wexford hurling manager Liam Dunne believes Jack Guiney doesn't want to be part of the panel "as much we want him."

Speaking to South East radio, Dunne confirmed the Rathnure man has been dropped from the squad for disciplinary reasons just days before their Leinster SHC semi-final clash with Kilkenny in Nowlan Park.

"Unfortunately, Jack won't be involved with this group," Dunne confirmed.

"We set standards, and the players set standards as you go along and players buy into it.

"If you don't want to come up to that standard or you can't give that commitment that's required, this set-up is nowhere for you to be.

"At the moment Jack just can't give that commitment. I'd love to have Jack Guiney and the players would love to have Jack Guiney.

"I'm not so sure Jack wants it as much as we want him."

Elsewhere, Owen Lennon has handed Monaghan a boost by declaring himself fit for the Ulster SFC semi-final clash with Fermanagh.
