Fives 50-50 for Tipp clash

Darragh Fives is a major doubt for Waterford's Munster SHC semi-final against Tipperary next month.

Fives is struggling with a quad injury and, while he will be given every chance to prove his fitness, Waterford manager Derek McGrath admits he is only 50-50 to line-up in the July 10 clash.

"Being 100% honest, he’s no more than 50-50," McGrath is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner.

"He has a torn quad muscle, going into his hip flexor. He’s obviously getting as much treatment as possible, but it’ll be a last-minute call.

"If he’s playing, we’ll name him on the Friday night, but if he’s not we won’t name him.

"It’s dodgy given his history with injuries. He doesn’t recover as quickly as the others. I’m slow to say we’d be hopeful, it’s 50-50 at best.

"The big problem is that he won’t have done anything for the four weeks since the Clare game. We’re trying to marry that with risking him. It’s a big call."

McGrath went on: "He’d be a huge loss. He’s a dominant player — good in the air, he’s alternated in different roles for us this year, he’s given us something different. He’s aggressive... it’s a pity because he’s on top of his game, but we’ll give him every chance."
