Burger not brought to book for ref slap

A PENNY for Paul Galvin's thoughts as he recalls the opprobrium following his infamous notebook-slapping of Paddy Russell.

Such a contrast to the utter indifference being shown to convicted eye-gouger Schalk Burger, who thwacked referee Mark Lawrence on the arm last weekend.

  • THE IRFU Charitable Trust will launch a mobile phone recycling campaign on Saturday, with the help of BPI Telecom. All money raised from the collection of old mobile phones will go towards assisting injured rugby players.

Volunteers for the IRFU Charitable Trust will be collecting old mobile phones outside Croke Park on Saturday and on Saturday week. For more information on this appeal or to request a freepost collection bag, please call 01 4279787. dk
