Watch: Sneaky Clare Official Throws Cork Sliotars Into Crowd
By David Kent Updated

Sunday's Munster final was a tight affair between Clare and Cork. The two counties have always had a rivalry. While there hasn't been a flashpoint as bad as Semplegate, there's still some underhanded tactics being employed.

A prime example of which happened before the game at the weekend.

While everyone in Semple Stadium was rising as the teams lined up for the national anthem, one sneaky Clare official ran behind the Cork end. He picked up a bag of sliotars that were left for Anthony Nash - and threw them into the crowd.

A video has now surfaced of that very incident. It's a sly tactic, likely intended to throw Nash off his game a little.

Of course, Cork simply gave the Kanturk goalie another bag of sliotars before throw in and the game started as normal.

It's understood that Cork GAA are understandably not best pleased with losing a bag of sliotars. They're requesting an investigation from the Munster Council.

Cork used the puck outs to their advantage to win their 53rd Munster championship title. They now advance to an All-Ireland semi-final. Clare are heading for a quarter-final against Tipperary. If the Munster Council decide to enforce a sanction, then this official will likely receive an eight-week ban, similar to Davy Fitzgerald.
