GAA to decide on International Rules future next month

Published 08/11/2006

The GAA says its Central Council will make a decision next month on whether to persevere with the International Rules series.

December 9th has been set as the date for a decision on whether to continue taking part in the series or abandon it altogether.

The meeting follows the violent scenes that marred Sunday's second test at Croke Park, with Ireland's Graham Geraghty knocked unconscious during a tackle by an Australian player.

Eight players were also sin-binned during the game, which saw numerous fights break out in the opening quarter.
