Sunday afternoon’s Championship match between the defending All-Ireland champions, Donegal and Tyrone was just about as physical and grumpy as we’ve come to expect from Ulster football. The tackles were flying in, not always with the greatest success as the below GIF suggests.
The player is Tyrone wizard Stephen O’Neill, who despite having a good 10 yards to build up a head of steam, found himself dumped on the seat of his unnecessarily-short GAA shorts. I’m not sure who the Donegal player is (update: Neil McGee) but he deserves kudos for riding the tackle and then nonchalantly passing to a team-mate. Hard.
