The Kilkenny Senior hurlers have been dealt a blow ahead of their Leinster Championship clash with Dublin on June the 11th.
Richie Hogan broke his hand in the Danesfort v Ballyhale game in the Senior hurling league last Saturday.
The injury keeps him out of action for a minimum 6 weeks ruling him out of a potential Leinster Final.
It’s a blow to the Kilkenny team who are already missing James Maher following a work accident and Ger Aylward from a knee injury.
Richie Power was forced to retire earlier this year due to a knee injury.
