Nigel Owens is the latest star to jump on the hurling bandwagon
The Welsh rugby referee was very impressed with the skills on show in Croke Park yesterday.
Nigel Owens is renowned in the world rugby for his witticisms and his ability to keep control of proceedings on the pitch, but would he be able to cope with refereeing a hurling match?
After watching the Leinster Final yesterday between Galway and Kilkenny (which featured this amazing goal from Joe Canning), Owens took to Twitter to voice his admiration for our beautiful game.
Just watching my first game of Hurling Kilkenny v Galway. Think I am going to be a Hurling fan. Very enjoyable and exiting I must say

One more recruit for the beautiful game.
