Ulster Senior Football Championship first round: Antrim 1-13 Tyrone 2-14

LAST Sunday the new hand-pass ruling riled many observers.

This time, the old bugbear of what constitutes a fair tackle in Gaelic football was gnawing at Antrim boss Liam Bradley.

Tyrone may have controlled most of this match, but ‘the Baker' was adamant that their second goal, emphatically rifled in by Owen Mulligan before the half-hour mark, should have been ruled out for an earlier foul on Saffrons skipper Colin Brady by the goalscorer.

“Last week we were talking about referees for a different reason, I think we should be talking about the referee today for the main reason – the second goal,” insisted Bradley.

“That was a free to us and the game hinged on it at the tail end, there were only four points in it.”

When another reporter questioned his side's first-half display, the exasperated Antrim manager declared: “The second goal was crucial. People have got to realise that was a free to Antrim. Colin Brady was fouled.

“That whole game hinged on that.”
