Anyone that backed Waterford to beat Tipperary in last Sunday's Munster SHC clash should root out their dockets if they did the bet in Boylesports.

For the Irish owned bookmakers has decided to pay out on the Déise even though their game against Tipp ended in a draw, albeit a controversial one.

A goal was awarded to Tipperary when the umpire adjudged that Waterford defender Austin Gleeson dropped the ball over the line, but replays showed that clearly wasn't the case.

According to the Waterford News & Star, Boylesports are paying out on all win, draw, win bets placed on Waterford and a spokesperson for the independent bookies stated that they felt Waterford were the rightful winners and thus they would pay out on them.

"We have to take action by paying out on Waterford as the rightful winners in their clash with Tipp on Sunday after what was a ludicrous decision to award a goal that very clearly wasn't over the line," said Boylesports spokesperson Aoife Herron.

She added: "We have also paid out double winnings as a free bet as a result of Tom Devine's goal in the ninth minute of the match, however the double winnings does not apply to the win draw win markets on Waterford that we paid out as a good will gesture."

As we speak, there are a number of people rumbling through bins and refuse sacks for dockets!
