The game against UCD produced a number of very physical tackles, mostly on the part of the home side. The UCD defender booked for the wild tackle on Davie McDaid might have seen red. Kenny Browne was lucky to escape punishment for his sideline tackle but there can be no doubt about the last of the three tackles featured below....basically a malicious assault on Shane O'Connor. Incomprehensible that a card was not flashed....not even a yellow one. The UCD player made no attempt whatsoever to play the ball and should have been dismissed for a straight red card ......appalling decision by the referee.....nothing changes.
