In this series, as proud sponsors of the AIB Club Championship, we explore #TheToughest lives of GAA athletes and how they compare to their professional counterparts across the world.

In this episode, Tipperary Captain Brendan Maher goes Down Under to play cricket with the Big Bash League side, Adelaide Strikers, while Ashes-winning English cricketer, Steve Harmison, tries his hand at hurling with Maher’s club, Borris-Ileigh.

As part of the trade, primary school teacher Maher immersed himself in the life of a professional athlete, as well as the unfamiliar demands of Australian life.

You can catch Part 2 of the #TheToughest Trade featuring Aidan O’Shea and Roberto Wallace here.
