Off the Ball on Newstalk


#863

Ross was an athlete, hope he doesn’t let himself go upon retirement.


#864

I can confirm that Ross played rugby in UCC and he wasn’t a mature student.


#865

:laughing:


#866

Jack may have said it. Doesn’t make it true.


#867

He was a candidate for the gastric band when he was in college. I’d say 1.5 times his current size


#868

Obviously not if he started dabbling in rubby.


#869

Are you guys counting tag rugby football by any chance? That could be the root of the confusion.


#870

Pal you are just #playingtothegallery now. It’s unbecoming.


#871

He is a techy guy apparently. Maybe he started playing rubby on the playstation?


#872

Molloy said he (Ross) worked in a lab up to his mid 20’s.


#873

Lolzers


#874

The big interview starts in eight minutes.


#875

Well have a load of rugby haters now tuning in especially and hanging on the every word of an overweight journeyman just to score a point. :joy:


#876

The tension is almost unbearable. It’s akin to the wait for the post-Saipan Tommie Gorman / Roy Keane interview.


#877

The sooner they get onto the interview and finish this gaylord banter about good looking men the better.


#878

You know they are wrong. I know they are wrong. But there is little enough he can say in this interview that will convince the lads I feel


#879

Truth. All those concussions render their utterances as reliable as a mental patient’s.


#880

By fuck if this fattie confirms he indeed started playing the game at 26/27 to a competitive level (as in making an effort at it) then we’ll run this gilgamboa cunt off the board…


#881

When was that mentioned before now?

He turned pro at 25 or 26 he played club rugby for cork Con and UCC for years before that and played underage before college


#882

Would competitive be classified as more or less serious than u13 C
