    Three Man Weave - Weather Chaos & Hurling's Cynicism Problem

    Three Man Weave - Weather Chaos & Hurling's Cynicism Problem

    Mark, Mick and PJ are this week's Three Man Weave as they take you through a weird week of GAA. 

    Wexford were the big winners from a weekend of weather chaos as the lads ask if the current GAA calendar is fit for purpose. The presence of a hurling black card on the agenda for this month's GAA Congress has also created a backlash, but does hurling need to look at the cynicism in stopping goals?

    Mark also provides some surprise drama with his National League Finals Higher or Lower Quiz and we celebrate the high flying Kerry hurlers and the high stakes drama of the football league.

    Three Man Weave - Is Football & Hurling Too Good Right Now?

    On this week's episode of the Three Man Weave, Mark, PJ and Gary ask one simple question: is football and hurling too good right now?
