O'Sullivan delight at 'perfect' return after lay-off

Paudie O'Sullivan has described his return to competitive action with Cork as "perfect" after a horrific leg break last year kept him out of the game for almost 12 months.

O'Sullivan came off the bench to score two points, the first within seconds of his introduction. He has had numerous setbacks and had to undergo further surgery last November, but his return in Semple Stadium will help him to draw a line under the experience now.

"It's not something that normally bothers me, getting to score. But for the first day back, to get one and the second one straight after was very nice. They're the kind of ones that you think about on the morning of a game that if only this could happen. It was perfect."

O'Sullivan played a club game last week and that gave him the confidence to compete again, having played just two half-hours in challenge matches with Cork up to that.

"That was massive for me. We all know the difference between challenge and championship.

"We'd a hard 20-25 minutes against Valley Rovers before it opened up but it certainly gave me the confidence to take a few belts or bangs.

"Then waking up the following morning and knowing I was okay, it set me up perfectly for this."
