Great shot, spot on timing. I'm sure they poured cold water on it and he played on,:-) tough out GAA players.

What is this sport?! Why is he running with a volleyball?

Also, what hurts? Looks like his ankle is tweaked. Looks like the guy is swatting the ball, not his nads.

Yes, the Irish boys have an unbelievable skill set!
As you probably know there have a few Irishmen who have been able to transition to the AFL.
Unfortunately this International series doesn't do either code any service - IMHO.
It is neither one nor the other.
For Aussie Rules players, the round ball is a significant handicap.
I don't even bother watching these games any more and the crowds are way down now.

This photo:
great catch! Expressions are priceless and I agree about the ankle. I'm always surprised at how extreme limb angles can get in the normal running of events without damage (take a look at javelin thrower arms and the angle of the elbow)


From the "Land Down Under" ... South Australia

You'd be very wrong if you believe that.
The series stands at 9 each, and you have only won 3 more games than us.

What's funnier is that the series nearly stopped due to the Irish complaining about being beaten up all the time.:lol:
