Tipperary Sportmen Sidelined For Four Months

Munster rugby star Denis Leamy has now been ruled out of the Six Nations Championship, due to possibly having surgery for a troublesome hip injury. Denis is unlikely to feature again for the Munster side this season.

Munster coach, Tony McGahan, confirmed that the 30-year-old could be sidelined for up to four months, as he attempts to resolve an injury which has consistently caused problems for the last six months. The Tipperary man, has only featured seven times for Munster this season, and will be travelling to London on Thursday, to seek specialist advice.

Meanwhile Tipperary hurling forward, Seamus Callanan, looks most likely to miss the entire National Hurling League, following a serious ankle injury.

It is understood that the Drom and Inch champion underwent an operation in Dublin this week, to rectify his ankle problem and has been ruled out of action for possibly up to four months.

Callanan’s latest injury setback puts the 23-year-old hurling ace under pressure to be fit for the Tipperary Munster SHC quarter-final, to beheld here in Semple Stadium on May 27th, against Limerick.
