Kilkenny’s All Star goalkeeper Eoin Murphy is delighted to be back training with the Cats.

The Glenmore clubman suffered a broken tibia on club duty in April but has returned to intercounty training after missing the start of the championship:

“I'm delighted to be back, even from a mental point of view,” he is quoted on Sky Sports. “Delighted to be back with the lads. But I'm still in a pair of runners, and I probably will be for the next week or two.

“It was sort of a twist with a hyper-extension involved so I was lucky I didn't do any other damage to it. There's a silver lining to everything, but it's not an ideal time to be injured, it's going to be hard to get the pace back now.

“You don't want to be missing games. That's the way it's gone now with the intercounty season, if you do pick up a knock now or anything like that, you could miss three quarters of it. There are a big couple of games coming up now.”
