Anthony Daly’s Dublin hurlers have been rocked by the news that star defender, Tomas Brady will miss the early rounds of the Leinster championship.
Full-back,Brady, has confirmed that he will be out of action for at least five weeks after suffering a recent injury. Scans revealed that the player has sprained a medial ligament. He will definitely miss the Dubs opening round of the championship,against Offaly at the end of May and must be a doubt should they progress to the next round.
“It’s very frustrating, particularly with the high that Dublin hurling has been on over the last week or two,” Brady told www.gaa.ie “It will be very frustrating to miss the game personally, but you have to accept that these things happen. It’s about bouncing back and being ready to go whenever you are needed again.I would be looking to come back for whatever game follows the Offaly match. Hopefully I will be back to full fitness. Once I get back to some sort of fitness and once my knee if it is alright come six weeks or so I will have to put in the performances in training if I hope to be selected again.”
The news comes at a bad time for Dublin, who are on a high after beating Kilkenny in the recent Division One National Hurling League Final.
