VIDEO: NFL fans tell us which Irish sports stars should play in the pros

Rugby players feature prominently but there are one or two surprises.


LAST THURSDAY, WE hosted an NFL Thanksgiving event in Dublin for more than 100 lucky readers of The42.

One reader walked away with the grand prize of a 55″ UHD LG TV, a Seline leather recliner, an XBox One with Madden 17, a one-year subscription to NFL Gamepass and €300 worth of Just Eat vouchers to help them put on the Ultimate Super Bowl Party next February.

On the night, we also asked those in attendance which Irish sportspeople they felt could change codes and make a career out of American football.

Unsurprisingly, rugby players were mentioned often, but some of those selected — including a Cork-born Manchester United player not named Roy Keane — may surprise you.

What about you? Which Irish sports star do you think could make it in the NFL?

Budweiser is a proud sponsor of NFL coverage on The42.
