Tipperary forward Willie Connors looks set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a serious ankle injury during yesterday’s Munster Hurling Cup quarter-final defeat to Kerry.

The Kiladangan clubman sustained the injury during the second-half of the Tralee clash, with play stopped for some 10 minutes as he received treatment before being brought to hospital by ambulance.

Tipperary GAA tweeted last night that the 25-year-old had suffered “a double ankle fracture” and wished him well in his recovery.

Part of Tipp’s 2019 All-Ireland winning squad, Connors is also a talented footballer having helped the Premier County to Munster U21 success in 2015.
