Galway United manager Alan Murphy has revealed that at least two of his players will not train tonight after suffering hypothermia on Saturday during the 1-1 draw against Shamrock Rovers II in Tallaght.

With Storm Jorge raging, shocking conditions prevailed for a 3pm kick-off, but referee Kevin O'Sullivan decided that the game should go ahead.

Temperatures were expected to be above freezing but the wind chill level at the Tallaght venue can be much lower. 

"At least two of our players will not train tonight as a precaution," Murphy told RTE Sport on Monday.

According to United boss Murphy, nine of the club's players were treated for hypothermia after the game.

Care given to United's players by the Rovers medics was given extensive praise by the Connacht club afterwards.

Hoops player Cole Omorehiomwan was brought to hospital due to showing signs of frostbite.

Referee Kevin O'Sullivan said on Monday he was unable to talk about the game specifically, pending the FAI's receipt of his report on it.

The FAI has been contacted for a response.

Shamrock Rovers officials have confirmed their players have now recovered. 

Sporting director Stephen McPhail said that conditions did not seem as dangerous at the time as it transpired.

"The players are all okay thankfully now," he said on Monday.

"It was unbelievable really and I never thought at the time it was that bad or had seen that before.  

"I knew conditions were really poor but I never realised how they were struggling until seeing them after."

Galway United defender Killian Brouder was taken off at half-time due to the effects of his core body temperature having plummetted.

Some of the United players vomited after the game and on the bus home.
