Watch: Joe Canning Made Hurling Look Terribly Easy Vs Wexford
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

If anyone had any lingering doubts about Galway's hunger in he chase of a second successive All-Ireland win, this evening's performance against Wexford should put such fears to bed. After last weekend's convincing defeat of Kilkenny in Pearse Stadium, Joe Canning was once again the familiar face as Galway strengthened their hold on proceedings.

Taking it to Wexford from the opening minutes, Galway were four-points ahead within 90 seconds; it was a gap Davy Fitzgerald's team never looked like reigning in.

With astonishing regularity, Galway took their points and kept the Wexford team (and crowd) quiet throughout. As always, Galway's talisman, Joe Canning, had his say on affairs also. In either half, the Portumna man hit two superb sideline cuts to keep the pressure on Wexford.

With the greatest of ease, Canning scarcely looked like missing either.

Although the threshold is rather high at this point, plenty were still suitably impressed with Canning's efforts.

In a second-half where he almost singlehandedly took over scoring duties for his side, some were so struck by his talents that the possibilities seemed endless.

With Galway cruising and Canning knocking points over at will, his 10th of the day was something special all of its own.

Accounting for over half of Galway's points on a comfortable evening on the south-east coast, there was no end to the love flowing in for Canning.

In the end, after an innocuous enough looking collision, Canning did find himself in some pain; subbed off for the final few minutes of Galway's victory.

Although he was able to walk off the pitch with a little assistance, there will be some concern that the injury isn't a serious one, and that Canning won't find himself hampered for long.
