Dublin have been rocked by the news that full back Tom Brady has suffered the dreaded cruciate knee injury and David Treacy will be out for 4-5 weeks with a hamstring tear. Brady only recently returned from a medial ligament injury to his other knee, but the powerhouse full back landed badly on his “good” knee when competing for a high ball with Joe Canning on Saturday.
David Treacy on the other hand only lasted about 8 minutes of action before his hamstring tear forced him to go off towards the end of the Galway match. Treacy has been plagued with injuries over the last 18 months and also suffered a cruciate knee injury himself last year.
This extends Dalys list of key men unavailable for the leinster final. Captain Stephen Hiney is already ruled out with a cruciate, Ryan O’Dwyer awaits his suspension from a red card and Joey Boland is still doubtful in his race to be fit for the July 3rd decider.
