The Dublin hurling team look to have been dealt a double injury blow with news emerging that both Paul Schutte and Danny Sutcliffe are carrying significant knocks after weekend games.
Schutte injured his knee during a challenge game in Limerick and underwent an MRI scan today to assess the damage. Sutcliffe is reportedly suffering from suspected broken bone in his hand after picking up the injury during a club match against St. Brigid’s.
Meanwhile, in Ulster, Down forward Benny Coulter may miss out on the county’s Ulster Championship campaign, after suffering a suspected broken ankle during a club match last Monday night. The former All Star is due to undergo a scan to assess the full extent of the damage, but manager, James McCartan, has confirmed that the team is planning without him.
The manager will also have to plan without Dan Gordon for the county’s Championship opener against Fermanagh on the 3rd of June, as he is still recovering from a metatarsal injury picked up during a league game.
