IRELAND CAPPED OFF a memorable November Series last weekend with a scalp over Australia to ensure we finish 2016 with a clean sweep of the Southern Hemisphere heavyweights.

Later in the week we saw Brian Cody commit to another season in charge of Kilkenny, although some pundits feel this was an unwise move. Controversy surrounding the mark coming into Gaelic Football continued, and the Melbourne FC captain got tangled up in his words in a cup-winning speech.

Here’s what you had to say.

Ger Loughnane criticised Brian Cody’s decision to re-commit to his role with the Kilkenny hurlers. But Ruairi Kinsella feels that Loughnane’s words have had no such effect in Kilkenny.

Reignited the debate?? I can tell ya there’s fxck all debate in Kilkenny anyway

Melbourne City FC captain Bruno Fornaroli, dropped the ‘F’ bomb at the end of a cup acceptance speech. Interupting Sheep suspects that the Uruguayan born player might have been set-up by his teammates.

Yea, yea Bruno. I swear, it means ‘come on’. Go on ahead and say it at the end. It’ll be great….”

Alan Mulcahy had this to say in response to the theory that Tadhg Furlong is inspiring a new generation of young rugby players in Leinster.

For me, the exciting bit is that kids are coming through the provincial club game. In the old days Leinster players from outside Dublin were typically from the top rugby schools, today they are from the clubs. As a Leinster fan, I am supporting up and coming stars who played as kids n New Ross and Athy (as well as the old reliables). The Leinster branch has been doing great work in helping to nurture the talent in the clubs.

Things got heated between David Haye and Tony Bellew at the press conference ahead of their showdown next year. Haye was afforded the opportunity on Sky Sports to send a message to Bellew, which he did with a crude amendment of his opponent’s second name.

The Sky Sports reporter conducting the interview was none too pleased with Haye’s choice of words but Anthony Campion feels it was a slight over-reaction.

The Sky reporter went a bit overboard Jesus fella it’s not the fall of the Berlin Wall your doing, it’s showbiz baby.
