Austin Gleeson has emerged as an injury doubt for Waterford's Allianz Hurling League opener against Cork on Sunday week after picking up a knee injury in WIT's Fitzgibbon Cup win over LIT yesterday.

The former Hurler of the Year hit 0-5 (0-4 from play) before being forced off in the 53rd minute as WIT cruised to a 1-23 to 1-14 victory in Moylish. 

The Deise will be keen to hit the ground running under new boss Liam Cahill when they welcome Cork to Walsh Park after a disappointing 2019 which culminated in Paraic Fanning stepping down after just one season as manager.
