Treaty row rumbles on

The Limerick hurling row shows little sign of resolution after the protesting players issued an incendiary statement last night.

The statement read: "There has been a deliberate and concerted effort by members of the county board, the team management and the backroom team to influence the thinking of club delegates and the wider Limerick public.

"There has also been a deliberate and concerted effort . . to influence the younger players who have pulled out of the 2010 panel, with huge pressure being put on using one player against another in trying to persuade them to change their minds.

"We will not play under the current management despite rumours, stories and spins to the contrary, most of them coming from the county board and the current management team.

"There will be no more players returning to training . . . It is now up to the club delegates to address the matter with the county board executive (tomorrow night) -- the future of Limerick hurling is in their hands."
