Ulster GAA president Martin McAviney says the referee's report on the game between Crossmaglen and Cargin does not mention any biting allegation.

Cargin manager John Brennan revealed after last Sunday's Ulster Club match that his player Michael McCann had said that he was bitten during the game.

Crossmaglen have said that they are happy that no such incident took place.

McAviney told the Irish News that referee Joe McQuillan's report did not mention the incident.

McCann said on Monday that he had informed McQuillan of the allegation during the game.

With no reference to any biting allegation in McQuillan's report, it is not clear whether the controversy is now at an end.

The Ulster GAA president added that the referee's report from the controversial game is not due to be dealt with by the provincial body until the week after Crossmaglen's Ulster semi-final against Kilcoo on 15 November.
