Déise ace won’t miss Mun­ster opener

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA -

Austin Glee­son has al­layed fears he might miss Water­ford’s Mun­ster SHC opener against Clare on May 27.

The 2016 hurler of the year was forced off with a ham­string prob­lem af­ter just 14 min­utes of Mount Sion’s cham­pi­onship win over Roan­more on Satur­day. The in­jury should side­line him for the rest of the month.

“I was just run­ning out and what­ever way I leaned off it was pop­ping. I don’t know how bad is it as it is still in­flamed but we’ll know in the next few days when I get a scan done. It’s not as bad as it was but it’s a few weeks any­way.”

Glee­son had missed the rel­e­ga­tion play-off de­feat to Cork with an an­kle dif­fi­culty. “Against Clare, a stud pierced through the skin and it ended up get­ting in­fected. It’s been a bad year so far!

“The Tip­per­ary game I had my right quad, the Clare game with my an­kle, I missed the Cork game and in my first time back play­ing the ham­string went. I haven’t had that many in­juries but three al­ready this year is a bit of a dis­as­ter but we’ll keep work­ing away in the gym. There’s a rower and a skier in the gym we use to try and keep the fit­ness up.”
