Tipp hurling star turns cricketer!

Tipperary hurling star Brendan Maher is to take part in a new documentary in which he tries his hand at professional cricket!

The 2-time All-Star is currently in Australia training with the Adelaide Strikers as part of a new feature about how other professional sports compare to the amateur AIB GAA Club Championships.

“I’m under no illusions that this is going to be really hard,” said the 27-year-old former Young Hurler of the Year.

“I’m expecting a massive challenge, but I have no expectations of how many balls I’m going to hit.

“I’m just going to go out and try to do as best I can; try and adapt to whatever I have to face.”

Premier County fans need not worry however - the forward will be in Australia for just a week before he begins preparations for the 2016 Championship with his native county.

You can view a trailer of the new doc below.
