Don't touch that dial... here's the sport on TV this weekend

There’s half the RTÉ canteen on the Late Late again, you’ve lost your video shop card and it’s cold outside. Stick on the Welsh Open snooker then.

IT’S A QUIET weekend of sport, truth be told reader. But let’s get on our Superman pyjamas, build a fort and watch the telly all weekend anyway, shall we?

  • One to sit in for: TG4 have reversed their decision to show the Garrycastle v St Brigid’s game tomorrow and will now feature the box-office clash of Dr Crokes and Crossmaglen.
  • One to Sky-plus: I’m heading to Noel Gallagher tonight so the Leinster game is taking a back seat.
  • One to skip: World Cup men’s giant slalom is just not my cup of tea. Shoot me.
