Kerry's Tadhg Morley Sees Red Just Seconds After Coming On Against Rossies

Tadhg Morley was on the pitch just a matter of seconds when he was sent off during Kerry's National League Division 1 South game against Roscommon on Sunday.

The Templenoe man had just entered the game as a second half replacement for Tom O'Sullivan when he was shown a red card by referee Joe McQuillan for what the official indicated to be a high tackle on Ciaran Murtagh.

The Kerry defender came on with around 51:20 on the clock. Less than 20 seconds later, there was the incident with Murtagh. The game had not even ticked over to 52:00 when McQuillan dished out the card.

Morley started Kerry's opening two games of the league against Galway and Dublin but dropped to the bench as Peter Keane freshened his line-up for the trip to Hyde Park.

Kerry were leading, 0-13 to 0-12, at the time of Morley's red card. Thereafter, they took a firmer grip on the game with David Clifford scoring the game's first goal.


Conor Devaney responded with a goal for Roscommon and Joe O'Connor got a second late goal for Kerry as the game finished 2-15 to 1-12.

Both teams ended the game with 14 players. Roscommon's Enda Smith was sent off after picking up two yellow cards.

Kerry will play Tyrone and Dublin face Donegal in the Division 1 playoffs. In the Division 1 relegation playoffs, Armagh will play Roscommon and Monaghan face Galway.
