Shefflin: I'm devastated

Published 11/08/2010

Tipperary's Henry Shefflin is coming to terms with the fact that he will miss next month's All-Ireland hurling final.

Shefflin, the championship's all-time leading scorer, has been ruled out of the Cats' five-in-a-row bid against either Tipperary or Waterford on September 5 after a scan revealed he suffered a severed cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first half of last Sunday's semi-final victory over Cork.

"I am so disappointed I don't know how I feel. I was hoping against hope that it was something else but the surgeon has confirmed my worst fears. I heard some pop. I had an idea I was in a bit of trouble but I was hoping it wasn't what I feared it might be. I am devastated," he said.
