It seems hurling is slowly becoming a worldwide game. Last week it was the Canadians who went mad for the small ball game on Twitter and now Welsh international rubgy referee Nigel Owens is hooked.

The popular ref watched on as Joe Canning's simply superb goal was not enough as Cody's Cats bagged their 70th Leinster title.

Owens was impressed. "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," he tweeted.

Welcome on board, Nigel.
