Canning blow for Galway
Joe Canning is a major doubt for Galway's opening Leinster SHC clash with Westmeath on June 4 after aggravating a hamstring injury playing for his club last weekend.
Canning scored a couple of goals in Portumna's victory over Padraig Pearses in the Galway SHC but Galway manager John McIntyre has admitted Canning is now a major doubt for their championship opener.
"He is having some hamstring trouble," McIntyre said. "It has been bothering him for the last few weeks, but club spirit saw him line out for Portumna and he is a major concern for us."
