On the record

At the time I didn’t even understand the effect it was having on me. Not only was I not enjoying being a rugby player, I wasn’t really enjoying anything I was doing.”

Munster’s Cathal Sheridan adds his voice to IRUPA’s mental health campaign.

The fixture list

  • The Republic of Ireland entertain Switzerland in an international friendly at the Aviva Stadium at 7.45pm.
  • There are two Irish sides in Guinness Pro12 action tomorrow action, with Munster hosting Zebre at 7.00pm and Ulster away to Glasgow Warriors at 7.35pm
