Another week. Another scoring controversy in the GAA.

Wexford keeper Mark Fanning was denied a perfectly legitimate goal when his penalty came back off the back stanchion of the goal at Innovate Wexford Park during their All-Ireland Round One hurling qualifier against neighbours Offaly.

Offaly were playing with the aid of the breeze in the first half and led by 0-9 to 0-7 at the break.

If Wexford are to lose this game by less than three points, then there is sure to be a massive controversy.

RTE analyst Tomás Mulcahy said it was the worst decision he had seen on 40 years of attending GAA games.
