ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS Kilkenny are set to be without star forward Richie Hogan for their Leinster semi-final against Dublin.

The 2014 Hurler of the Year broke his hand in a club match with Danesfort last weekend and could be sidelined for up to 10 weeks, according to a report in Wednesday’s Irish Daily Mail.

A Cats spokesperson confirmed news of Hogan’s injury to The42 but said that the timeline for his comeback is still unclear.

“We don’t know the extent of it yet,” he said. ”The expectation is that he will be out for the semi.”

Kilkenny open their Leinster defence against Dublin on 11 June in Portlaoise.
