Tipperary and Wexford are locking horns this afternoon in the National Hurling League semi-final.
After a run of six victories in the campaign to date, Davy Fitzgerald’s side are on a remarkable run, and huge credit is being given to the Clareman’s influence.
Tipperary got off to a super start in the match, scoring two early goals. In front of a packed Nowlan Park, tensions were clearly high, and Fitzgerald entered the field to remonstrate with the referee over an incident in the run-up to Tipp’s second goal.
However, he was met by Tipp forward Jason Forde, before being instructed off the park by the officials.
Naturally, it was the talk of Twitter.
What exactly does Davy Fitz have to do to get sent to the stands?

Davy Fitz running onto the pitch in a fit of rage throwing shoulders into players is everything I love about the GAA #AllianzLeagues
