Cork senior squads go on strike
The members of both the Cork senior football and hurling panels have gone on strike in a row over the selection of the county's team managements.

Billy Morgan refused to reapply for the football manager's position after the county board said that they would appoint selectors for both managements.

On Saturday, the football and hurling squads took he decision to "resign" from their respective set-ups.

Teddy Holland was appointed to succeed Morgan as county football boss.

The decision means the players will be unavailable for training and meetings with Holland and hurling boss Gerald McCarthy.

The players vowed not to make their services available again until and unless the issue is resolved.

Managers Holland and McCarthy may find themselves attempting to cobble together alternative squads ahead of the start of the National Leagues in February.
