There's good news for Galway hurling today with reports suggesting that the injury sustained by Joe Canning in yesterday's Allianz Hurling League semi-final defeat to Waterford was nothing more than a dead leg.

There were fears that the former Hurler of the Year would face a spell on the sidelines after he was stretchered off following a hard shoulder by Kevin Moran as he headed towards goal in the closing minutes.  

"I think it was his groin," Galway manager Micheal Donoghue said.

"He took a few heavy hits on it and I'd be intrigued to watch it back and see the hits he got going into it, just before it."

The news will come as a relief to Donoghue ahead of the start of Galway's Leinster SHC defence in May.
