Thuggery and mayhem: whose Rules?

Another disappointing result in the International Rules Test series against Australia. Once again I managed to miss it on radio or television as I was travelling in England yesterday and was without access to long wave radio. I’ve no doubt that the Aussies were sharpened up on their ball handing skills by their former Dublin coach. But the picture on the front page of this morning’s Irish Times says says it all/. Former Dublin goalkeeper Paddy Cullen says that Ireland should withdraw from further participation in the compromise rules game.
