What real costs are there tho? Use of GAA Grounds (probably free), use of DCU facilities, facilitated by a few already contracted coaches / officials, the cost of a few Business class plane Tickets - probably freebies from Emirates who are involved as Sponsors.

Ethihad were GAA sponsors - not any longer.

They might have thrown out a couple of upgrades on the very QT, that was the height of it though.
It was Emirates and the AFL I was referring to.

Another title for MVG. Only watched bits & pieces but I see (Twitter) that Taylor threw the toys out of the pram again after getting beat in semi.

I really doubt there is any significant financial cost. Ultimately they persist so there is obviously value for money there.

No sympathy for him but it's increasingly the way things are going, witch hunts all over the shop, presumed innocence is a thing of the past if you get caught up in a social media whirlwind.

Entertaining series of games. Taking it to the USA seems like a great idea, you'd imagine both teams would go at near full strength for the Jolly up factor alone, it should also attract big crowds on the East coast but unless it's a bit earlier in the year I'd say the players would be hoping for a California game.

Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast takes that crown.
I'd second that, probably more memorable because it was such a departure from his other roles, the first time I watched it I was transfixed by him. Fantastic Film.

Few potentially interesting ties - Saudi Arabia v Iran & the old Favourite Croatia v Serbia. The Spirit of Vukovar SC.

Saudi Arabia And Iran can only meet if they qualify for knockout stages.
Why's that?

Edit - Scrub that, presumably in same qualifying group.

Zapped on Dave TV is decent & pretry amusing. You could watch both Series in a night or two.

Watched Whyte v Chisora  again (Bad Blood show on Sky), that was some fight. Not surprised Wilder wants to dodge Whyte and go straight for AJ - he mightn't get past him.

Race day at Gowran Park

Played well and always an entertaining side to watch. Gerry Armstrong is a total wab. Davis is real quality.
