Tyrone's game with Cavan this weekend in the McKenna Cup is on hold pending the outcome of an emergency Ulster Council meeting on Tuesday night.
The meeting will determine what, if any, punishment to hand down to Tyrone after they played four university students in Sunday's win over Derry.

Under the competition rules university teams have first preference on players who are also eligible for their county.

Tyrone boss Mickey Harte said the players opted to play for the county.

"The players made that decision. They were asked where did they wanted to go, and they chose Tyrone," said Harte.

However, under the McKenna Cup rules, as determined by the provincial council, Damian McCaul, Colm Cavanagh, Brendan Boggs (all UUJ) and Cathal McCarron (St Mary's) should have declared for their respective colleges.

"The Ulster Council position is that they have broken the regulations, and we'll have to see what to do," said Ulster Council chairman Micheal Greenan.

"It's not a matter for me, it's a matter for the council to deal with, and the council will deal with it."

One option is that the defending champions will be docked points for their controversial stance.

Tyrone are due to meet Cavan in the final and decisive Group B tie under lights at Breffni Park, with the winners going through to the semi-finals.

It was interesting to see how Harte had his young prey come on to the telly last week and back up his argument. I still think he needs taken down a peg or three for his actions.

And then he'll withdraw and go after the O'Byrne Cup  :D

I'd say it depends on who his Dad played for.

And to a lessor extent who his mates play for, who hist mammy played for etc etc etc

Pint, as far as I know, the village actually straddles the border. Its called Cullaville north of the border, and Culloville south of the border.

Maybe trueblue can confirm.

On the other hand, the club could provide the authorities with the names they require!

Why not bring the PSNI into the tournament? They coul arrest and detain 15 county players (a la Mickey Harte) and have them play for the Queen.

The format looks complicated enough. Still, it might take our mind of the girls, and look at the football instead. ;)
