Will they still need him when he’s 64? It seems the answer is yes while Street Fighter moves appear in the Munster Junior Football final.

We’ve featured some elder GAA statesman before but Lisa Rea was in touch to tell us about Jerry Rea, who togged out recently for his club Brothers Pearse in London. Originally from Limerick Lisa tells us that while he didn’t get a run out in this match in Ruislip, the 64-year-old has stepped in to play in goal sometimes when they are a man short.

Hadouken skills come to the GAA

Thanks to this brilliant photo by Dan McGrath we think we have the first sighting of Street Fighter moves in the GAA.

Taken at last night’s Munster Junior Football final between Cork and Waterford, it appears to show Waterford’s Stephen Prendergast flinging Cork’s Ruairi Deane away with an invisible force field.

GAA Hadouken

It is certainly better than all those posed Hadouken pictures doing the rounds and they are even wearing the colours of Ken and Ryu. If you have no idea what we are talking about, have a look at this.
