Lar Corbett Admitted To Tipperary Hospital

Corbett-DelaneyThurles Sarfields 2010 GAA hurling Star of the Year and Tipperary left corner-forward Lar Corbett was admitted to South Tipperary General Hospital, Clonmel, last night, as a precaution, to assess the possibility of two suspected broken ribs and possible kidney damage, following his outing in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny yesterday.

The Tipperary hurling great Corbett and Kilkenny star J.J. Delaney were both issued with straight red cards, around the 44th minute of the match, having become entangled in a serious off-the-ball altercation.

While it is unclear when Lar actually suffered these injuries, footage shown on TV, clearly demonstrated Delaney striking Corbett’s helmet, however this was possibly only part of a confrontation, which had begun earlier, as the pair pressed for match dominance.

The anticipation of a one-match ban for both players should see the players left out of their counties opening provincial games, against Offaly and Limerick, while the uncertainty now regarding Corbett’s future fitness will certainly raise concerns, during the weeks ahead.

Tipperary wish Lar a speedy recovery to full health.
