Sport with Conor Canavan

Firstly to soccer.

The Premier League is coming towards its final 10 matches so things are getting exciting. Man Utd are running away with the title. Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal are going for Champions’ League places and at the bottom; teams like QPR, Reading, Wigan, Aston Villa and Southampton are doing their best not to get relegated. Luis Suarez, Robin van Persie and Michu are going for ‘top scorer’ and Gareth Bale will probably get Player of the Year. I think Man Utd will win the League, Man City will come second – Spurs and Arsenal to get in the Champions League. I think Reading, Wigan and Aston Villa will get relegated.

 
The Champions’ League is also getting exciting. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Malaga, PSG, Bayern Munich, Borrusia Dortmund, Galatasaray and Juventus have all made it to the quarter finals. I think Real Madrid will win because they have a strong squad and they have players like Ronaldo, Ozil, Benzema and Ramos so I think they’ll win it but it will be close.
 
Now to GAA.
 The Allianz National Leagues have started. After 2 matches, Cork are top of the hurling with a win over Tipperary and a draw with Waterford. After 4 matches, Cork are mid-table in football with losses to Dublin and Kildare and wins over Down and Tyrone. Cork have a new jersey sponsored by Chill Insurance. The Cork U-21 footballers won their Munster quarter final against Kerry 0-14 to 2-07. I was at the match and it was very exciting because Cork nearly threw it away at the end. They will now play Tipp in the semi-final. At this time of year, training is a nightmare for GAA players because you mostly do running but it’s all worth it because you get fitter and it gives you an advantage over the man that you’re marking.
 
And rugby…
Ireland have had a really disappointing 6 Nations. After they won against Wales, I thought they could win it but then they lost against England and Scotland and drew with France, so it turned out to be a bit of a disaster. If they win against Italy though, they will feel a bit happy. Wales vs England will be a great match because both teams are going for the championship. France have had a terrible championship and if they lose against Scotland, the coach will probably get sacked.
