On the record

Joe doesn’’t sleep at night thinking about how we can get better, how he can push the team on. He’s obviously delighted, I’m sure, with how it went last year – to win a Six Nations in your first year is pretty spectacular.

But the man that he is, he wants to push us on, he wants to be the top team out there.”

The best thing we shared

Would you rip up an All-Ireland final ticket in order to win money for your home club? We’re thankful it wasn’t us who was faced with that dilemma before Sunday’s clash between Kerry and Donegal.

The fixture list

  • There’s more Capital One Cup action to look forward to tomorrow, with Chelsea v Bolton and Spurs v Andy Reid’s Nottingham Forest among the standout ties.
  • For those interested in European football, La Liga, Ligue 1, the Bundesliga and the Serie A all have games. Malaga v Barcelona is one of the many fixtures.

Showbiz, baby

This young American football team showed that showbiz glamour can certainly backfire. Running through a big banner ahead of a game sounds cool, but this is how not to do it.
