Joe Canning will be available for selection for Galway’s HL1A clash against Tipperary at Pearse Stadium.

Canning picked up an elbow injury during the defeat to Limerick last Sunday week, but Galway manager Shane O’Neill revealed to the Midland Tribune that the former All-Star will be available.

“Joe is fine,” said O’Neill. “He’s back training. He just got a hurley in the elbow and his hand wasn’t working. It was just a nerve thing.

“No other injuries, touch wood. So far, so good. Everything has been fairly ok in that regard and we are just preparing for Tipperary at this stage.”

This is a must win game for both sides, but particularly Tipperary who are still seeking their first win of the campaign having suffered two defeats so far.

The Allianz Hurling League returns this weekend, make sure you join the match tracker for live scores from the third round of games.
