DUBLIN CLUB SIDE St Brigid’s are taking plenty of heat on social media after a player-coach contract proposed by the management was leaked on Twitter.

The 2003 Leinster club champions haven’t been crowned kingpins of Dublin since 2011, and this year they’ve requested each player sign the contract which outlines 16 key requirements.

According to the document, failure to abide by the rules will result in a player being removed from the panel.
