Collins delighted to be back

Clare's Podge Collins has spoken of his delight at making his return from a long injury lay-off.

Collins opted to focus on the Clare footballers in 2015 but his season was cut short when he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury while playing for Cratloe in May.

Having made himself available for the Clare hurlers, the 24-year-old made his first appearance for Davy Fitzgerald's side since 2014 when he came off the bench during Sunday's 2-28 to 1-09 win over Kerry.

He was surprised by the pace of the game and admits it will take time to get back up to match fitness.

“Getting used to the pace of it now will be a bit tough, but getting a first day out in nine or 10 months is great. I found it hard when I came on, the pace is very high. There were a lot of hits going in," Collins is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner.

"It’s great to see how far Kerry have come in recent years. I know the scoreline was big, but I don’t think it reflects how much they have developed. It was a good physical intense game and great to get a run.”

Clare face Limerick in a Allianz Hurling League Division 1B promotion clash and Collins believes the match will set them up for the Championship.

“It really starts from here now. There is a lot at stake. When you go down to 1B, it’s a very tough division to get out of," he explained.

"We were fortunate enough to go to Wexford and get a result. So it all lies on next week against Limerick.”
