Kilkenny County Board to appeal Hogan’s controversial red card: report
THE Kilkenny County Board are reportedly set to appeal Richie Hogan’s controversial red card from Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling final defeat to Tipperary.
Referee James Owens gave the Danesfort man his orders shortly before half-time for what was perceived as a high elbow on Tipperary’s Cathal Barrett.
The Irish Independent this morning reported that Kilkenny are awaiting the contents of the referee’s match report to ascertain exactly what the 31-year-old was cited for.
As things currently stand, Hogan would miss the first match of Kilkenny’s 2020 championship campaign. The player is understood to be fully behind the decision to appeal.
He told Newstalk’s Off the Ball this week that he felt the decision was harsh and said that the tackle had been merely mistimed.
