Bugler’s suspension is upheld

clare hurlingThe GAA’s Hearings Committee has said there is not enough evidence to overturn referee Cathal McAllister’s decision to send off Brendan Bugler in Clare’s 2-22 to 2-20 Allianz League win over Dublin at the weekend.

The decision means Bugler will miss both Sunday’s game against Kilkenny and then a subsequent quarter-final or Division 1A relegation play-off, also likely to be against Kilkenny.

A GAA statement outlined: “Brendan Bugler was ordered off for attempting to kick with minimal force. A Hearing was requested as he chose not to accept the proposed penalty.”

“The Hearings Committee found that evidence provided was not sufficiently compelling to rebut the referee’s report therefore the Infraction was proven.”
