O’Neill major London doubt

Eoin O’Neill is a major doubt for London’s Connacht SFC clash with Leitrim after suffering a knee injury during last weekend’s round of club championship games.

O’Neill was hurt after just 20 seconds of Tir Chonaill Gaels’ win over county champions Fulham Irish.

O’Neill attempted to play on but was forced to withdraw on 12 minutes after competing for a high ball.

“We’re hoping it’s not as bad as it first looked,” said Exiles boss Paul Coggins. “It might be just a dead leg. He was in the pool with the team on Sunday night and he’ll have a couple more of those sessions during the week.”

Coggins also has concerns over Greg Crowley, Danny Ryan (both hamstring) and John Scanlon (back).

“Greg isn’t looking great, while I’d say Danny is definitely out,” said Coggins. “John took a knock to his back on Sunday but he should be okay.

“A lot of the lads are sore after the weekend. We’ll be looking to give them as must recovery time as possible this week.”

Coggins brought his players to the Crown Moran Hotel on Sunday night for a recovery session and to help refocus minds on Sunday’s visit of Leitrim. The scheduling of club championship games means all of the London panel are now eligible to play.
