    SUNDAY PAPER REVIEW | Patrick Reed bares his soul... and namechecks McIlroy | Why Chelsea wanted new wave Graham Potter | URC comes under fire

    Joe Molloy was joined by 2010 All-Ireland winner Clíodhna O'Connor and journalist Conor McKeon on this weekend's edition of the Sunday Paper Review.

    The curious case of professional golf's 'black hat' Patrick Reed sparked the first talking-point on today's papers after the 2018 Masters winner conducted his first major interview since joining the Saudi-backed LIV tour.

    As the United Rugby Championship announced a sponsorship deal with state-owned Qatar Airways, the guys examined what has been a fairly negative reaction to the news among a selection of today's rugby writers.

    Has sport and its superstars become too homogenized? We explored the recent proliferation of behind-the-scenes sports documentaries and the service they provide.

    SUNDAY PAPER REVIEW | GAA's 'cultural issue' with referee abuse | How to cover doping in journalism? | Rooney's revelations on United/Arsenal | Has VAR stolen football's joy?

    John Duggan was joined by the former Dublin footballer Mick O'Keeffe and journalist Brendan O'Brien on this weekend's edition of the Sunday Paper Review.

    Does the GAA have a 'cultural issue' with the abuse of referees? John, Mick and Brendan explored the most recent instances of match officials being targeted and considered what must happen to eradicate this kind of behaviour.

    Following an article written in the Sunday Independent by Paul Kimmage about the coverage of certain sports with relation to doping, the lads considered how often and how deeply the issue and theme of doping should arise.

    Furthermore, the lads lamented the lack of coverage given over to the Republic of Ireland Women's National Team after their midweek defeat of Finland, enjoyed what Wayne Rooney had to say of his Manchester United vs Arsenal memories, and a whole lot more.

    SUNDAY PAPER REVIEW | Brolly & O'Rourke envision new Gaelic Football | GAA's managerial merry-go-round in full swing | Golf at a crossroads

    Will O'Callaghan was joined by Colm Keys of the Irish Independent and Gavin Cooney of The 42 on this week's edition of the Sunday Paper Review.

    Joe Brolly and Colm O'Rourke brought us their vision of Gaelic Football as they feel it should be - and there was plenty for our two guests to talk about.

    There's also plenty to talk about in the world of professional golf, and we take a look at the significant number of GAA pundits taking a dip back into inter-county management.
