Forde hit with proposed two-match ban


Tipperary's Jason Forde has been hit with a proposed two-match ban for his altercation with Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald during the Allianz Hurling League semi-final.

Fitzgerald was handed an eight-week suspension for the incident which saw the Wexford boss enter the field of play to remonstrate with referee Diarmuid Kirwan for his failure to award a free to James Breen in the build-up to Tipperary's second goal before clashing with Niall O'Meara and Forde.

The Silvermines player is facing a two-match suspension for his part in the incident but he is expected to be free for Sunday's Allianz Hurling League final against Galway with Tipperary officials planning to appeal the punishment.

Should Tipperary fail in their appeal they will be without Forde for their first two championship games, but the Premier County believe the punishment is excessive and are keen to take their case to the Central Hearings Committee.
