GAELIC GAMES

It’s reported that the GAA could now sanction county teams who are found training before September 14.

Earlier this week, the GPA asked that if sessions are happening that their members be insured.

However, it’s now claimed the Injury Benefit Scheme will not be in place before September 14th.

Teams found breaking the training embargo could find themselves expelled from the championship.

Laois football manager Mike Quirke feels it’s only right that sanctions are in place
