The Tipperary County Board Chairman says he’s confident they can have what he calls a ‘severe injustice’ overturned.

Michael Bourke says the appeal against Jason Forde’s suspension for an incident with Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald will be heard in Dublin next week.

He says they want midfielder Forde’s two match ban completely reversed so that he can be available for the start of the Munster Championship.
