The Toughest Trade 2017 - March 1st and 10th

Four GAA stars line up for The Toughest Trade promo

It's back and it's better than ever! The 2017 version of The Toughest Trade is just around the corner with the first episode starring Donegals, Michael Murphy, and Welsh rugby legend, Shane Williams, on RTE2 this Wednesday night at 9.30pm.

As seen in the video, Murphy will swap sports with former Welsh rugby winger Shane Williams as hetravels to France to team up with top 14 side Clermont Auvergne. In return, Williams will temporarily join Murphy’s club Glenswilly. Both players will spend a week immersing themselves in their new sport and club before taking part in a final challenge designed to test whether GAA club players can compete at the same level as professional athletes.

It was a daunting task for both players with Michael even remarking that “some of these lads are absolute monsters!” and Shane and having to take part in “definitely the most tiring skills session (he’s) ever done”. We can’t wait to see how they both get on.

Episode 2 will star Wexford's Lee Chin and former Vancouver Canucks goaltender, Alex Auld, and will air the 10th of March, 10.35pm, RTE2. Hope you enjoy the shows!
