Poll: David Humphreys or Peter Clohessy In The TPHOF Semi-Final

Poll: David Humphreys or Peter Clohessy In The TPHOF Semi-Final
By Mark Farrelly

First off, it's time for us to reveal who the winner of last week's Terry Phelan Hall of Fame poll. Joe Deane and Seanie McMahon went head-to-head for a place in this great hall of fame and it was our most popular contest yet ... Alas, the winner, with 51.03% of the vote is Joe Deane.

Congrats to a great Cork hurler and it's more than deserved. But moving on, we need to find our next inductee. This time around we're doing thing a little differently. We want to induct a rugby player but they're ain't going to get in that easy.

This week we're pitching a Munster player against an Ulster player. Then next week a Leinster player will face off against one from Connacht. The winners of both these polls will then go into a Terry Phelan Hall Of Fame rugby final where the inductee will be then determined.

This week's nominees are David Humphreys and Peter Clohessy.

The Irish Independent reports, 'Using his knowledge of injuries suffered on the pitch, 'The Claw' managed to stop 13-year-old Aoife Fanning from choking on her own tongue after she fell from her pony while out with the Scarteen Hunt in Co Tipperary earlier this month.'.

So who should make the final showdown?
