McCaffrey limped off with a leg injury after the opening quarter of today’s comprehensive semi-final win over UL.

At the stage that McCaffrey was withdrawn, UCD were already on their way to victory which could indicate it was a precautionary measure but the Dublin star did immediately get ice applied on his injured leg.

If McCaffrey is ruled out of tomorrow’s decider against reigning champions DCU, it would be a major setback to UCD’s hopes of ending their 20-year Sigerson Cup drought.
