Tipperary’s Jason Forde has had his two match ban for an altercation with Davy Fitzgerald halved.
The pair clashed during the National Hurling League semi-final when the Wexford manager came onto the pitch.
Davy Fitz was given an 8 week ban which was not appealed however the Tipp County board did appeal Forde’s ban.
The GAA’s Central Hearings Committee discussed the matter last night – they found the charge of “any type of assault on an opposing team official” was not proven.
They instead imposed a one match ban for the lesser offence of “contributing to a melee”.
As it stands the Silvermines clubman would miss the Munster semi-final against Cork – however Tipp do have the option of appealing the decision to the Central Appeals Committee.
