Hamstring worries for Cork's O'Flynn

Cork's Robbie O Flynn and Seamus Harnedy with Patrick O'Connor of Clare

Robbie O’Flynn is a doubt for Erin’s Own’s Cork SHC clash with Ballymartle this weekend.

The Cork attacking star aggravated a pre-existing hamstring injury earlier this month and looks set to sit out Saturday’s big game:

“We played Ballyhea last Sunday week, he started for us,” selector David McNamara informed The Irish Examiner. “He was going quite well, he hit the ball over the bar and he tweaked the lower part of his hamstring. He is getting physio with Declan O’Sullivan. We will see where we are with him, but at the moment he is rated doubtful.

“It is a huge blow for Robbie because he loves playing with Erin’s Own. It is a big disappointment for him and obviously for us.

“He is a massive player and a super talent. We will have to wait and see. He has a long season ahead of him so we have to make a sensible decision on that.”
