Former Limerick star Niall Moran reckons Davy Fitzgerald got the game-plan wrong with Wexford this year.

The Slaneysiders’ season came to an end on Saturday when they lost out to Clare in Thurles, where a late rally from the Leinster side proved to be too late.

Speaking on RTE’s Game On programme, Moran thinks that this group have “missed the boat”.

"I think Davy's got it wrong with them. This game-plan, maybe it seems to centre around trying to find a game-plan that nobody else had, whether it was right for Wexford or whether it wasn't right for Wexford," he said.

"They got huge results out of it early doors which at that level of their development as a team, they had players that trusted in it.

"But over the last two or three years, a lot of those players have developed but the game-plans they've been playing hasn't suited them.

"They only pushed up in the end of the league encounter between the two teams when they punished Clare - albeit Clare had 14 men - and the same the last day when they pushed up, they got totally different results.

"I think they missed the boat. I think he got it badly wrong with them this year."
