Ninjas Choke Hold on Munster

Posted on Jul 4, 2011 in News

 
 

Congratulations to the cutest hoors in Munster. As long as you’re wearing green and gold it seems no matter how hard you smash somebody in the face, pin someone to the ground by the neck or karate kicked in the leg you just can’t have the rules applied to you and be sent off.

Just ask the Kerry lads. They had a field day yesterday testing out their martial art skills on the Rebels on home turf.

Ninja Star lashes out sending O'Leary to the ground....but the referee sees nothing 

Kieran ‘Ninja Schtar’ Donaghy showed off his Thai boxing skills with a savage stud-encrusted stab at Noel O’Leary’s leg with his boot sending the Cork defender to the ground in agony.

Although any deliberate striking motion requires that a referee must issue a straight red card to a player who clobbers another the Meath man in black seemed so impressed with Donaghy’s downward leg-dawk on poor Noelie that he issued a yellow card.

 

The Kerry ninjas get inside the minds of referees

If you didn’t know already the GAA’s myriad of disciplinary committees cannot now revisit the incident as the referee is deemed to have dealt with it at the time.

Later Kerry captain, Cooper performed a very impressive choke hold on young Cork substitute Denis O’Sullivan. Most ‘striking’ about the Kerryman’s move was the length of time he managed to hold O’Sullivan on the floor without any officials interfering, something other martial arts experts will be intrigued by as the clock ticked down in the Kingdom’s favour.

 

 

Cooper applies a throat-crushing neck hold on O'Sullivan. Mind techniques were then used to confuse referee who awarded Cooper's efforts with a yellow card...for O'Sullivan. 

Mind techniques however are by far the most subtle and cute method used by Kerry. The referee suffering from heat exhaustion, and possibly stupidity, was so dazzled by the swift movements of green and gold karate chops and kicks that he was unable to see anything at all.

This was proved by television replays in which the referee is seen clearly looking in the direction of a Kerry ninja as he knocks a Cork opponent to the ground but so quick and fast was the technique executed that the referee is unable to see what TV cameras picked up.

Such lightning limbs take years to condition and Kerry players have cleverly perfected this art to great effect.
