We wuz robbed. The whole match revolved around one incident that the referee got criminally wrong. All the hard work, the sweat, the skill, the hard evenings' training come to naught because of an incompetent official. The incident was a seemingly harmless squabble on the touchline with about 6 or 7 players involved - all giving as good (or as bad) as they got. When the dust settled, the ref pulls out a red card and sends Tommy Dunne off. Why him alone, or at all is a mystery to all concerned. He is devastated, this is his last season - this now his last match.The departure of the Toomevara talisman and playmaker tips the balance in Ballyhale Shamrock's favour and the rest is inevitable. Toomevara go from a 7-point lead to a 3-point defeat.
