The Ulster Council met last night but have yet to come to a decision on Tyrone after they fielded college players in last weekend’s McKenna Cup final against Donegal.

The referees report from the match was read at the meeting but the matter is ongoing, with reports from some quarters suggesting the 2005 All-Ireland champions will face a disciplinary hearing and have their McKenna Cup victory quashed.

Tyrone fielded fielded two University players, Cathal McCarron and Damien McCaul, during their final win over Donegal on Saturday having earlier being docked points in the Group stages for the same offence.

Competition rules state that University sides should have first pick on players eligible for both teams.

Manager Mickey Harte has defended his move on the basis that both Universities had been knocked out.
