Austin Gleeson Cleared to Play Final!

: 08/15/2017 - 18:52

Austin Gleeson is free to play in the All-Ireland final against Galway.

Referee James Owens informed the Central Competitions Committee (CCCC) that he is happy with his officiating of the All-Ireland semi-final, which means the Hurler of Year will not be sanctioned .

Gleeson pulled the helmet from the head of Cork’s Luke Meade, grabbing it by the faceguard.

It was expected that Gleeson, who is the current Hurler of the Year, would face a suspension.

Cork’s Patrick Horgan along with Waterford’s Conor Gleeson were both shown red cards during the semi-final . Gleeson looks set to miss the All-Ireland final, but Waterford are expected to appeal.
