Galway manager Alan Mulholland thinks there will be huge problems with the black card once the intensity of the national league comes into play.
The Tribesmen finished the game with 14 men after a combination of three black cards and substitutions meant they were unable to replace Mark Hehir when he was sent to the line late on.
Mulholland also saw James Kavanagh and Sean Denvir ordered from the fray, but he thinks that the refereeing of the black card has confused players.
“So far we haven’t really seen much because not a whole lot has been on the line. But I think it will be a big, big story in a couple of week’s time when the national league starts.
“To be honest, the players are a little confused as to what they are getting black cards for and what they are not. When the national league starts and you lose guys who are decisions makers and you are not too sure why, then it’s going to cause trouble,” said Mulholland.
