Kevin Hart – picked on for size

Any odd items in your kit bag?

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
David Curley and Joey Cullen always have a great one liner in them. Dressing room is normally laughing at Ryan McMahon for the wrong reasons though.


Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Not many of the lads single so tough one to call. Ryan McMahon is newly in love and there’s even rumours she’s a better footballer than him.
