Injured Kerwick’s season is over

Tipperary hurling manager Liam Sheedy is resigned to being without Pat Kerwick for the rest of the season.

The Killenaule attacker, who received an All-Star nomination last year, needs surgery to correct a groin problem which has been troubling him all season.

"He’s had a niggling injury that we just can’t get rid of. It’s really, really disappointing for him – he played in the All-Ireland final last year and we all saw the guy had real potential. I’d say his season could be at an end. It’s up in the groin area, he’s had numerous scans. We don’t think it’s going to come right – surgery is probably the only option," Sheedy said.

The news is much better concerning Lar Corbett and Mickey Cahill, who should both be available for Sunday week’s All-Ireland semi-final against Waterford.

"Lar should be okay. Obviously his shoulder is a bit sore since the quarter-final but he should be okay, and all going well he’ll be back – Michael Cahill likewise. Everyone else is reasonable," the Tipp boss added.
