Cruciate woe for Spillane

Cork's Colm Spillane will miss the remainder of the 2016 season due to a cruciate knee ligament injury.

The defender was injured during Cork's Allianz Hurling League Division 1A defeat to Waterford on Saturday but the extent of the problem only became clear on Monday.

As a result, the 22-year-old will sit out the remainder of the year.

"The news is devastating, firstly for the player himself and it is a huge blow for us as a management team," Cork manager Kieran Kingston confirmed.

"Colm went off injured in the second half last Saturday night and, whilst we were hoping the injury was not too serious, the scan has revealed the worst. He’s a big loss to our plans going forward because he was going very well.

"The injury is similar to the one Christopher Joyce sustained last year and all we can do now is give Colm every support during his stay on the sideline and welcome him back when the time comes again. He’s only 22 so he’s young enough to come back as good and stronger than ever."
