Misogyny in rugby should be sent to the sin-bin

“A gentleman’s game;” the unofficial motto of the sport of rugby union, a game traditionally associated with the upper classes, often perceived as being dominated by white Protestant men. The sport champions the ideas of sportsmanship, fair play and, above all, respect.   On the pitch, players are taught to be respectful towards their teammates, […]

Trinity lose thriller to Princeton in College Park

Trinity women’s rugby team lost a frantic and very entertaining exhibition match to the visiting Princeton University at a floodlit College Park last night.   The match, which was played in four 15 minute periods, was decided by the blistering pace of the Princeton backline which allowed them to attack from any field position.

Risk assessment

The annual GAA congress passed a motion to ban betting companies from sponsoring any teams will be discussed. GAA may not be the biggest benefactor financially of advertising and sponsorship from betting companies, but its players are certainly among the highest who suffer from gambling addictions.

MMA: a game of risks

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is one of the fastest growing sports on earth. It’s boxing, wrestling, kickboxing, karate, and more all mixed into one, which gives it a wide base of appeal.
