Announcing The #SDskillset For Gaelic Football

Announcing The #SDskillset For Gaelic Football

Over the last few months, Balls.ie and Sports Direct have been testing three of Ireland's best hurlers - Jamie Barron, Shane O'Donnell and Cian Lynch - in the #SDskillset hurling challenge. Waterford's Jamie Barron won that closely-fought battle in a video we brought to you a few weeks back.

It would be unfair if we were to leave the #SDskillset purely to hurling, so it's with pride that we present the #SDskillset Football Challenge. For this video series, we assembled three of the best of the forwards in the country on one pitch to test their skills in a range of shooting exercises.

You've seen these players lighting up the Championship and the Super 8s this season: it's Kerry's Paul Geaney, Monaghan's Conor McManus and Galway's Damien Comer going up against each other in the #SDskillset football challenge.

It's a three video series that will run from today up through the Football All-Ireland final. The first skill to be tested is free-taking.


Watch the video below and stay tuned to our channels for the next installment in the #SDskillset gaelic football challenge from Balls.ie and Sports Direct.
