Cork selectors expected to quit tonight

Cork hurling is set for a major overhaul with the resignation of its four county selectors tonight.

With the current players crisis set to escalate in the coming days - Pat McDonnell, PJ Murphy, John Meyler and GAA Secratary Frank Murphy are all expected to step-down at tonight's meeting of the county board.

It's understood the decision by the selectors represents a bid to prevent the current players strike deepening - with the Cork footballers due to meet tomorrow night to clarify their position.

The GPA has also given it's backing to the hurlers who began strike action on Friday - describing the move as 'courageous' and 'historic'.
