Alan Cawley Doesn't Want Big Bans Following Munster Derby Brawl

Alan Cawley Doesn't Want Big Bans Following Munster Derby Brawl
By Eoin Lyons Updated

Waterford beat Cork in the Munster derby last Friday thanks to Courtney Duffus' 80th-minute goal, but the main talking point from the game was the fracas deep into the second half which saw two players from both sides sent off as well as managers Alan Reynolds and John Caulfield.

Soccer Republic have this evening tweeted out a clip of the incident in full:

Waterford's Bastien Hery and Stanley Aborah and Cork City duo Garry Buckley and Steven Beattie were given their marching orders, with decisions on the length of their ban yet to be decided. But Soccer Republic pundit Alan Cawley doesn't think the Independent Disciplinary Committee should come down too hard on the four players:

I wouldn't go too heavy handed on the lads either. Obviously there's sanctions in place for straight reds and such, one game ban and two game ban and whatever the case may be. But I wouldn't be going overboard with four and five, six game bans or anything like that.

Cawley did state that the biggest benefactors from the unsavoury events were Dundalk given the players' incumbent suspensions:

The biggest winners out of this is Dundalk because Waterford are going to end up losing Aborah and Hery who are their two best players arguably so far this season. I think Cork can cope with losing the likes of Beady and Buckley because of their big squad, but Waterford can't afford to lose those two, who are so influential for them.

The Independent Disciplinary Committee will meet this week to decide on any further action for the players involved in the scuffle.
