Kilkenny's Richie Hogan Sent-Off For Dangerous Challenge In All-Ireland Final

Kilkenny's Richie Hogan Sent-Off For Dangerous Challenge In All-Ireland Final

Kilkenny forward Richie Hogan was shown a red card by referee James Owens towards to end of the first half of the All-Ireland final against Tipperary.

In the 32nd minute, Hogan lined up Tipperary corner-back Cathal Barrett for a shoulder on the sideline. However, as Hogan stepped towards Barrett, the Tipp man stepped back and Hogan clipped him with his elbow.

After taking a few moments to consult with his linesman, Owens decided it was deserving of a red card.

Speaking at half-time, Henry Shefflin said that he thought it was not a red card, also adding, "I know Richie well and he's not a good tackler. This was not a good tackle".

According to RTÉ, Owens said to his linesman that 'if he made contact with the head, then we have no choice'.
