  • The draw for the knockout stages of this year’s Uefa Champions League was made and it’s bad news for Arsenal

The Best Thing We Shared

You know that famous Barbarians try against the All Blacks in 1973? Well, Bandon Grammar basically conjured something similar in the Bowen Shield at the weekend.

On The Record

We’d be wise to learn from every game we play. I think the day we think we’re in the company of Tipperary and Kilkenny is the day we’ll perish.”

Waterford boss Derek McGrath was frank in his assessment of things, despite the Deise’s impressive 2015 performance.

The Fixture List

There are plenty of games in the Championship down for decision on Tuesday evening. Three of the top four are in action: Brighton are away to QPR, Derby host Bristol City while Middlesbrough welcome Burnley. All fixtures kick-off at 7.45.

Showbiz, Baby!
