Blow for Mayo as midfield star suffers broken collar bone

September 19, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

MATTHEW RUANE WILL miss Mayo’s All-Ireland SFC qualifier clash against Down next weekend after suffering a broken collar bone on Friday night. 

The Connacht Telegraph reports that Ruane went down with the injury during an A vs B training game.

It’s unclear at this stage how long he’s been ruled out for, but Ruane is likely to miss at least a month of action.

Ruane was one of the finds of the league and played a starring role in the Division 1 triumph, forming a formidable midfield partnership with Aidan O’Shea. He bagged 1-1 in against Kerry at Croke Park in April as Mayo lorded the centre-field battle.

James Horan’s side travel to face Down in round 2 of the qualifiers on Saturday night. The return of Seamus O’Shea and Donal Vaughan from injury will bolster Horan’s options in the middle third.
