Kerry Suffer Colm Cooper Injury Woe During Munster Final Win
By PJ Browne Updated

The real winners of today's Munster Championship final in Killarney was neither Kerry or Tipperary, instead it was the bookies. The handicap going into the game was Kerry -10. Kerry's margin of victory: 10 points. Who bets on the handicap draw? Nobody.

Despite the win. Eamonn Fitzmaurice will have worries. Namely the concession of two goals, allowing Tipperary back into the game and a first half injury to Colm Cooper - who was playing in his 84th championship match.

20 minutes into the game, Cooper departed the Fitzgerald Stadium pitch holding his shoulder. He had been involved in a heavy collision with Ciaran McDonald shortly beforehand.

According to the Irish Examiner's Tony Leen, Cooper has sustained a collarbone injury which could keep him out of an August Bank Holiday weekend quarter-final.
