RTÉ analyst Anthony Daly has suggested that both Antrim and Meath should be promoted from the Christy Ring Cup following Saturday's controversial clash in Croke Park.

The Central Competitions Control Committee is to meet on Tuesday morning after match referee John O'Brien admitted there was a mistake with the full-time score.

Meath were crowned champions after a one-point win, but afterwards Antrim announced they were considering an appeal after confusion arose following a 63rd minute point.

Speaking on The Sunday Game, Daly said it was a terrible position for all parties to find themselves in.

He said the competition, along with the Lory Meagher and Nicky Rackard Cups, was created "to promote hurling in the weaker counties", but on their big day the scoreboard can't get it right.

"It's unfortunate, the match was a draw, Meath get the cup, the celebrations were wild, then we hear last night [about the appeal]. It's just horrible really," said Daly.

Daly also questioned how Meath "would get their heads right" for a replay at this stage.

Former Kilkenny hurler Eddie Brennan also questioned how the process allowed for an incorrect score line.

"It’s easy say it now but you'd be saying is it a process where the ref goes down through the score, tots it up and makes it right?"

He added that in "best practice that should happen", but it has not occurred in this instance.
