Roscommon forward Ultan Harney is hoping to put an injury ravaged 2017 campaign behind him as he continues his rehabilitation from a back injury.

Harney was sidelined for the majority of this year's campaign missing out on the Connacht SFC final win over Galway and the subsequent clashes with Mayo in the All-Ireland SFC quarterfinal.

The Clann na nGael clubman is currently undergoing treatment for the injury, but he admitted to the Roscommon Herald that as soon as he is back on the pitch, he is going to give it their all.

"It's not my plan to go back and ease into things," said Harney. "I will go hell for leather in every game, throw myself at everything. That has got me to where I am and I wouldn't have it any other way.

"That's my game and that's why I enjoy it. If I was pulling out of hits, I wouldn't be happy. Even if I hit ten points, If I pulled out of one tackle I wouldn't be happy.

"That's the way it is and I just have to manage that. In ten years I will count the scars, if I can get to that stage."
