Despite the ongoing radio silence from team management, in this week’s Mayo News Mike Finnerty provides a comprehensive update on injuries affecting the panel ahead of the Galway game on Sunday. It doesn’t make for an upbeat read and it’s online here.
Let’s start with the bad news.
According to Mike’s piece, Brendan Harrison, David McBrien, Jordan Flynn and Fionn McDonagh are all understood to be unavailable for the game due to their respective injuries. It gets worse because it’s also reported to be unlikely that Robbie Hennelly, Eoghan McLaughlin and Bryan Walsh will be involved on Sunday while Tommy Conroy is, of course, out for the whole campaign.
The bad news doesn’t end there because Paddy Durcan is said to be in a race against time to recover from the hamstring trouble that has kept him out of action since the Kerry game in Tralee six weeks ago.
In more positive news, both Oisín Mullin and Diarmuid O’Connor are understood to be fit and available for selection for Sunday’s crunch meeting with the neighbours.
