Deise wait on Shanahan

Lismore man hoping to return against Clare

Waterford are waiting on news of Maurice Shanahan's hip injury as they prepare to defend their Allianz Hurling League crown in the decider against Clare next weekend.

The talismanic Lismore forward missed the semi-final win over Limerick and visited a specialist yesterday to find out if he will be available to play on Sunday week.

"Maurice is gone to see a specialist so we'll know more later on," Shanahan's brother and Waterford selector Dan explained.

"He's in Cork with a specialist so we'll know more when he gets the results.

"It's a groin injury maybe coming from the hip, he didn't want to chance it last week and he came to us and said he wasn't right which is fair enough.

"We are hoping he'll be okay for Sunday week and if he's not he'll be back for the championship then definitely."

While they wait on news of Shanahan, the Deise faithful have been boosted by the imminent return to action of Pauric Mahony and Stephen Bennett, with both players expected to be available for the Semple Stadium showdown.

"They are making great progress," Shanahan added.

"They probably will be in contention for the 26 but they are training hard at the minute."
