Waterford are waiting to see what sanction Tadgh De Burca faces before making a decision on what course of action to take.
The All Star defender received a straight red card in the Deise’s All Ireland quarter final win over Wexford last Sunday after he appeared to pull on the helmet or face guard of Harry Kehoe.
He will be given a one-match ban in accordance with rule 7.2 which covers behaviour in any way which is dangerous to an opponent, including deliberately pulling on or taking hold of a faceguard or any part of an opponent’s helmet.
The focus of any challenge by the player to a hearings committee will be on the deliberate nature of the act.
Video replays show a tangle but no clear footage however De Burca was sent of on the word of the Linesman.
Waterford selector Dan Shanahan has vowed the board will try to get any suspension overturned.
