Forde's appeal falls on deaf ears
17 May 2017
Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald clashes with Jason Forde of Tipperary.
Tipperary's Jason Forde has failed in his bid to have his one match ban overturned.
The midfielder is set to miss Sunday's Munster SHC quarter-final clash with Cork after his appeal to the GAA's Central Hearings Committee fell on deaf ears.
The Silvermines clubman was initially hit with a two match suspension following an on field altercation with Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald during the Allianz HL semi-final.
The GAA's Central Hearings Committee subsequently reduced his punishment to one game but Forde appealed that to the Central Appeals Committee and after a hearing last night his suspension was upheld.
The Premier County and Forde still have the option of taking their appeal to the Disputes Resolutions Authority.
