Dublin hurlers hit by injuries to young duo

Youngsters Paul Schutte and Danny Sutcliffe have emerged as injury concerns for Dublin ahead of their Leinster SHC campaign.

Cuala clubman Schutte is the main worry having picked up a knee injury in the Dubs' 0-18 to 1-12 challenge match defeat to Limerick on Sunday.

Schutte stood in for the injured Peter Kelly at full-back during the Allianz League, and has undergone an MRI scan today to find out the extent of the injury.

Dubs boss Anthony Daly is also sweating on the fitness of promising forward Sutcliffe after he broke a bone in his hand during St. Jude's 1-10 to 1-9 victory over St. Brigid's on Sunday.

Sutcliffe was undoubtedly Dublin's best forward during the league run. He finished as their second top scorer with 2-15, behind free-taker Paul Ryan (1-37).

Daly's men are back in competitive action on June 2 when they face either Laois or Carlow in a Leinster Championship quarter-final in Tullamore.

There are some positives for the Clare native though with Tomas Brady, Conal Keaney and Stephen Hiney all returning to play for their clubs. David 'Dotsy' O'Callaghan also marked his return to inter-county action with a 0-4 haul against Limerick.
