We've dealt with biting, now we move on – Gavin

Dublin's approach to the incident which resulted in Jason Whelan being suspended after allegations of biting in an O'Byrne Cup game was fully in line with how they deal with disciplinary issues, according to team manager Jim Gavin, writes Martin Breheny.

"We are always fully co-operative with the committees that are set up (to investigate). Whatever, we're asked to do, we do it whether it's access to players, managers or videos. This was no difference to any previous case. He (Whelan) has got his suspension – that's it and now we move on," said Gavin.

Dublin's Sean George was sent off on a straight red card during Saturday's win over Kerry and they now await the referee's report. "We need to speak to the players and see what the referee says. If there's striking, he gets his suspension, but we need to see what's in the referee's report."
