For our last side line ball, a Cork player clearly catches their player around the neck and he ignores it.
I did not see any bias. People can choose to see what they want though.
Limerick are a fine side. They hammered Tipp and Clare and a few of them like the Lynches, Barry Nash and Tom Morrissey have a lot of experience at this grade. If they are 'no great shakes', then who are the great shakers this year?
We have a fine side too of course. They put in a fine effort but were beaten by a better team.
I simply cannot agree with the ref thing here SB. He was brutal. Any 50/50 went to Limerick. I rarely give out about refs but tonight I was left feeling totally frustrated. What's more, I said before the end he'll make a few more stupid decisions and I was proved right. He did fuck all for us and while Limerick were better, the better team doesn't always win the match. Total frustration
