Watch: Controversial Late Point Saves Ballyboden, Denies Clonmel In All-Ireland Club Semi-Final

Sometimes, it feels as though there's an unwritten rule in GAA that should you run into traffic and as a result be harried by an opposition player, you'll be allowed a few extra steps with the ball in hand.

Clonmel Commercials led by two points two minutes into injury time against Ballyboden St. Enda's in the All-Ireland Club Championship semi-final.

First a point from Andrew Kerin and then captain Darragh Nelson drew the Dublin side level to force extra-time.

Should Nelson's point have been allowed though?

Looking at the replay, certainly not. The Ballyboden centre-back undoubtedly took an excessive amount of steps - approximately 12 in total - before firing over the equalising score.
