Mixed emotions for Fitzgerald and Cody

After watching his side cough up a nine-point advantage, Wexford boss Davy Fitzgerald was critical of the lack of consistency in referee James McGrath's calls during yesterday's Leinster SHC clash with Kilkenny.

The Cats advance to a Leinster final showdown with Galway courtesy of their 0-22 to 1-18 victory over the Model County and Fitzgerald wasn't happy with the Westmeath official's display.

"I think I'm wasting my time in this job," he told the Irish Independent. "I'm not going to say why. Just go back and look at it.

"There's frees given in one half and they're not given as easy in the second half and that's a fact.

"I love the way Kilkenny play but we're wasting our time if it's not 100 per cent across the board."

Fitzgerald's Kilkenny counterpart Brian Cody was, understandably, delighted with his team's second-half comeback.

"It was a very good win for us," Cody remarked.

"At half time we had a fair deficit but we missed a lot of chances in the first half. It was really a tester for the players but they responded very well and we just worked, worked, worked.

"Everybody drove on and it was a great effort from everybody."
