Kilkenny supporters shouldn't get too excited by the sight of Paul Murphy lining out for his club Danesfort this weekend.
It is unclear if Murphy and army colleague Colin Fennelly will be considered for selection for the opening round of the Leinster SHC round robin series which begins next month against Dublin as they will only be home from the Lebanon.
Murphy is home this weekend on a short break and is set to line out for Danesfort in their senior league clash against O'Loughlin Gaels on Sunday afternoon.
However, the former All-Star is set to return to the Lebanon after the game and complete his tour of duty.
Danesfort will definitely line out without Richie Hogan who is still sidelined with a back injury that is threatening his inter-county year.
