The South Tipperary senior hurling championship final between Mullinahone and Carrick Davins scheduled for Clonmel on Sunday has been called off as the row over the expulsion of Carrick Swan from the championship rages on.

The South Tipperary senior hurling championship final between Mullinahone and Carrick Davins scheduled for Clonmel on Sunday has been called off as the row over the expulsion of Carrick Swan from the championship rages on.

Holders Swan were thrown out of the championship when they failed to play their semi-final replay against Mullinahone, claiming that they had nine players unavailable.

However Swan said they would fight the expulsion all the way and would only relinquish their title on the field of the play.

A hearing with the South Tipp GAA Board has now been scheduled for next Wednesday and the final has been put back pending the outcome of that meeting.

The delay is also likely to impact on the county championship with the next round due to involve beaten divisional semi-finalists - and what team that will be in the South has yet to be determined
