Tipperary's Brendan Maher leaves the field injured against Clare

There is more bad news for Tipperary today with confirmation that Brendan Maher suffered cruciate ligament damage in last Sunday week's Munster SHC defeat to Clare.

The former captain was replaced by Willie Connors after sustaining the injury in the closing stages of the 1-21 to 1-23 loss in Thurles, which ended Tipp's involvement in this year's championship. Maher will undergo sugery next month.

The injury is a huge blow to Maher's club Borrisoleigh as it will keep him out of action until next spring.
