The Best Thing We Shared

Nathan White announced last week he was to retire from rugby on medical advice, and here he reflects on his playing career with Connacht ahead of their inter-provincial meeting against Ulster.


Where We Were Today

Fintan O’Toole caught up with Bernard Brogan as he launched the Sport Industry Awards 2016. While Ben Blake and Paul Fennessy are the Aviva Stadium for Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against Georgia.

On the Record

“(I was) probably a centimetre and a half away from ending my career so that’s how lucky and unlucky I am I suppose in a way. If it went off the bone, it’d be a different story. There’s still hope to try and get back anyway. I’m getting the brace off one of the days. Six weeks done after the operation, so rehab now for the next couple of months.”

Galway hurler Joe Canning is hopeful that he will get some game time before the end of the 2017 hurling league campaign.

The Fixture List

In the first of a inter-provincial Pro12 double header, Connacht host Ulster at the Sportsgrounds.

There are three games in the League of Ireland Premier Division, including a tasty Dublin derby between Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers as well as a host of World Cup qualifiers including Belgium against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

In the Dublin SFC second round, Lucan Sarsfields take on Ballinteer St John’s at Kiltipper Road with throw-in at 7.30pm.

Showbiz, Baby!
