"cringy and apish behaviour that goes on at times, especially on the sidelines"

Couldn't agree more!

and thanks for noting the fourth red was indeed the umpires call, I realised I had missed that out.
Hopefully we'll be talking about the hurling after Sunday's finals, rather than the cards/officials/managers.

Which umpire was it? Wasnt at the game myself but from what I heard the referee was almost left with no choice but to send off who he did before the start of the second half, rumours he was also assaulted himself? Fulham have done themselves no favours at all with their carry on on twitter either one tweet remarking how they're playing at Kiernan's level and the referee has lost it, certainly not going to win you many friends making comments like that online!

But I think there are things needing to be talked about.

1 offical from the loosing team has been continually been suspended for his behaviour.He continually ignores his ban and is on the side line and nothing is ever done.

Behind the goals at the clubhouse for the fourth red. The reds at HT must have been somewhat justified or else he was laying down a big marker but as said it probably left himself open for the second half with blacks etc. For a club who've won two championships on the back of some questionable refereeing I think Fulham just need to take their oil this time. The entire first half pressure was being put on the officials from the line and some in the stands, fair play to Kiernans management who didn't get involved in that nonsense.
Don't think there was any assault. Probably got off very quick! As said the board are going to have to come down hard on this nonsense. Happens at a lot of games. Some people get a bit carried away which is fair enough but some of what you see here at times is just simply ridiculous and pathetic.

Neither team can claim to be holier than thou on the day and red cards at half time are a justified talking point. I don't think anyone apart from the referee and his assistants is able to explain the reds - we have to assume that was the correct decision. The only point on the red cards is that some of the players on both side who got red carded would be some of the most unlikely characters you'd associate with a scrap in the tunnel. It was either very out of character for them or they were picked out wrongly in the mass of bodies. I stand to be corrected but im not so sure the ref picked out the true culprits.

The second half did descend in to some farce with the number of black cards, but most by the letter were black. The issue is the rulebook and not the ref's correct application.

The football was entertaining in between the madness. Kiernans should have won the game a lot earlier in the second half but lacked the forwards alongside Farley with a cutting edge to take their chances. Fulham showed great resilience to hang on in there like true champions.

A different name on the trophy and hopefully one that gives encouragement to the other clubs at senior to break in to the big three.

How are Sean Treacy's getting on in London hurling?

Are they a club who struggle for numbers?

I stand corrected. Thought London was out of Connacht for another year. Think I've got confused with inter county.
