Joe Canning has recovered from injury and will take his place on the Galway bench for this evening's Leinster Senior Hurling Championship clash with Dublin.

The news will be a huge boost to The Tribes for the tie at a sold-out Parnell Park in the capital (throw-in 7.0pm).

Canning underwent surgery on a groin complaint after taking a heavy hit in the Allianz League semi-final loss to Waterford on March 24th.

The initial diagnosis was a 14-16 week recovery period and Canning could play some part in the game against Mattie Kenny's side.
