Just as an aside, Mark Carruthers is an excellent broadcaster. Not sure if he is on the radio shows anymore.

His questioning of Conor Murphy from SF and the SDLP for that matter, compared to the right Honorable p***k Jeff Donaldson was a clear indication of who they are promoting.
I don't agree that they are always that bad, but I do agree with your comments this morning (and I am no SF lover) - I heard Jeffrey and Conor Murphy on - two different interviewers.  Joel Taggart ffs was interviewing Jeffrey - I thought he was a sports guy who stood in the odd time but he has really dragged the quality down.  Chris Butler on Conor Murphy was also terrible.

I caught the tail end of the Conor Murphy interview and would have had no issue with the hard line in questioning he got but as long as it was reciprocated in the other interview which it mustnít have been going on comments. Joel Taggart interviewing politicians?? Theyíll have Sidebottom on next though after his interview with Harte heíll maybe prefer the commentary box.

He needs to tell the dad to sling his hook and get a proper team around him.

Yeah very poor from Eubank. Another hype job. Swing and hope seemed to be in his favoured tactic this evening. Groves shoulder injury surely wouldnít be healed in time for a May final?

Having said that I enjoyed the fight.

Frustration would probably be a key in both the above transfers.

Whilst it's not exactly in the GAA ethos, I don't really blame anyone for wanting to go to test themselves at the highest club level they can.

I canít agree with the last statement. If thatís the case then the small club wonít survive for much longer if thereís a drain in talent and itís accepted that you can just leave to play at a higher level. I donít know much about the 2 transfers discussed though.

When do Best and Henderson get sentenced? Was there not a couple of other fellas involved at one stage?

Theyíre going to let them get the 6 nations out of the road first and then I believe there is a public stoning at city hall planned for 18th March #stillmycaptain

Iím sure Monaghan and Kildare fans didnít mind the amateur camera work for their match yesterday as at least they got to see some footage of their match.

People going mental on Twitter about Best and Henderson attending the trial yesterday talking of Best being stripped of the captaincy etc.

Is it just me or is that mental? Are you not allowed to support your friends now? Attendance at a trial is hardly condoning rape.

You're dead right. Reaction is totally mental, yet completely predictable where the Syferuses of the world are so prominent in social media. You have to support your friends where they claim innocence and there is doubt, but very surprised JoeS/IRFU didnt take it out of their hands and forbid them from attending

I can't imagine the IRFU knew anything about them attending I'm sure they would have wanted to avoid the headache that was inevitable from this happening.

Iíd say they would have been aware of it as theyíd be in camp for the match this weekend. Probably unneeded attention for them. Social media over the top as usual but IRFU should just have nipped it in the bud and stopped them attending.

BBC NI have no bother showing highlights on a Saturday at 5pm of 3pm Irish league matches yet RTE canít do the same even though the highlights arenít aired until 6 hours after the final whistle of NFL matches. I donít imagine it to be very difficult or too costly to do so. Itís pathetic coverage.

Highlight of the episode being the Mary Black song at the end credits.

Just watched it....Eleanor McEvoy song at the end??

I wrongly assumed that was Mary Black! Possibly was Eleanor McEvoy. Did she write that song?

Michael Conlan teaming up with Adam Booth. Good move from Conlan in my opinion I think Booth is the top trainer in the UK. I like what heís doing with Burnett and Kelly looks top drawer too. Good stable of fighters boxing out of that gym now.

Slow enough start but thought the second half had a few laughs.

Insert obligatory quote from show and laughing emoji.

Twitter is exactly this!

Itís watchable but think itís more a mrs brown boys than a fr ted in my opinion.
