Allstar Kelly an injury doubt for LIT Fitzgibbon clash with NUIG

EOIN KELLY is extremely doubtful for Limerick IT ahead of Friday’s Datapac Fitzgibbon Cup semi-final against NUI Galway.

The Tipperary man, who didn’t play with his county at the weekend, has a badly torn hamstring and is given little chance of being fit to play.

LIT, who are hosting this year’s championship for the first time, are also concerned about the fitness of Cork’s Kieran Murphy, who was substituted during Sunday’s NHL game against Wexford.

NUIG are worried about the fitness of Tony Scroope. The Tipperary man damaged a hamstring in the semi-final win over UCC and hasn’t trained since.

Meanwhile, Niall Moran is struggling to be fit for UL’s semi-final against defending champions Waterford IT at 3pm at the same venue.

The Limerick player damaged a hamstring during Sunday’s NHL defeat by Tipperary and will undergo intensive treatment in the hope of being fit to play.

WIT, who are chasing a hat-trick of titles, must continue to plan without Anthony Owens (groin) and Rory Jacob (groin), both of whom were on the winning team in 2004, but have played no part in this year’s competition.
