John Mullane believes Wexford will prove themselves to be real Liam MacCarthy Cup contenders this summer.

The Model County were edged out by eventual champions Tipperary at the All-Ireland semi-final stage last year, having captured the Leinster SHC, and Mullane is extremely impressed by the system Davy Fitzgerald has put in place on Slaneyside:

“You can underestimate this Wexford team this year at your peril, and if any team or any county thinks they were one-hit-wonders last year, they can think twice because they are going to be extremely hard team to beat,” the Waterford legend told The Throw-in Podcast.

“They're going to be there or thereabouts come the summer, make no mistake about it. For any team to beat Wexford they're going to have to play very very well on the day, going to have to be very well organised, and I just can't get over their system.

“They're starting to believe in themselves that ‘Do you know what? We are the real deal. We're as good as Tipperary, as Kilkenny, as Limerick’. And there is no reason why they can't push on and win a Liam MacCarthy this year.”
