Shefflin to have tests on ankle

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Further tests will be required to determine the extent of Henry Shefflin's ankle injury, sustained in his club's defeat to Oulart-the-Ballagh at the weekend.

The 11-time GAA All-Star picked up the injury in the first half of Ballyhale Shamrocks' narrow one-point loss to the Wexford champions in the AIB Leinster Club semi-final on Saturday, and his enforced withdrawal shortly afterwards was a massive blow to his side.

There is the possibility of ligament damage, and Shefflin will have to wait until the swelling goes down around the ankle before scans can determine the extent of the injury. 

After the game, the team's manager, Shefflin's brother Tommy, suggested that he could have a broken bone in his ankle but an x-ray revealed this was not the case.

This time last year, Shefflin injured his shoulder in a club game and was on the sidelines for seven months. However, he recovered in time to keep his record going of never having missed a championship match for Kilkenny, playing in all their games in 2012.

Shefflin is famed for his ability to recover from injuries, having battled back from a number of setbacks during his career to be back in flying form come the summer.
