Blow for Cork hurling as Colm Spillane is ruled out for the rest of the year
Cork hurlers have been dealt a massive blow with news that Colm Spillane's season is over after he ruptured his cruciate ligament in Saturday's defeat to Waterford.
The young defender will miss the rest of the year, with Cork boss Kieran Kingston telling the Examiner: “The news is devastating, firstly for the player himself and it is a huge blow for us as a management team. Colm went off injured in the second-half last Saturday night and, whilst we were hoping the injury was not too serious, the scan has revealed the worst.
“He’s a big loss to our plans going forward because he was going very well."
