Should Galway's Johnny Coen have been sent off for this high tackle?

The Sunday Game panel said it should have been red.

IN THE END, it didn’t prove to be crucial..

With Galway three ahead late in the first half Colin Fennelly turned inside Galway’s Johnny Coen, before the Galway defender took him to ground with a high tackle.

The corner back escaped with a yellow, but we’ve certainly seen red cards for less this year.


Opinion was split on Twitter, with Limerick corner forward Seanie Tobin saying the defender was lucky not to see the line.

Meanwhile Clare’s Podge Collins – also of the corner forward club – thought James Owens got his decision spot on.

Although after watching it back, he had a change of heart.

It’s pretty clear what Brian Cody thought of it.
