New Hurling Controversy

Cork narrowly beat Limerick in the All Ireland Hurling quarter-finals last weekend.

Now Limerick have complained that Cork players introduced non-standard sliothars at critical times during the match, substituting them for the standard ball.

At Hogwarts, Harry Potter's school, the house which houses all the sleveens is known as Slytherin. Sounds like an appropriate nickname for the Cork hurlers.
