Wexford fans, how many of these lads can you name without resorting to cheating of any sort?

Wexford fans, how many of these lads can you name without resorting to cheating of any sort?

We all know Ben Brosnan is a handy man for kicking a few points from play and from placed balls, but if you follow him on Twitter you’ll know that his talents aren’t confined to the pitch and he’s a dab hand at photoshop when the creative mood takes him every now and again.

With the Oscar selfie dominating the news and social media agenda this week, Ben decided to recreate it to include the faces of a number of his Wexford teammates in place of Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and all the other A-listers who crammed into the shot on Sunday night.

We’re ashamed to say that in the absence of Wexford correspondent Sean Nolan we had to ask Ben for help in putting names to some of the faces in the picture above, but have a look for yourselves and see how many you can guess before checking the answers – kindly supplied to us by Ben himself – by scrolling down below.

Hat-tip to Ben Brosnan for all his help with this one
