It's a no show Joe for Brolly V The Gooch
A potential awkward encounter between RTE pundit Joe Brolly and Colm Cooper was averted at the last minute as the pair avoided encountering each other on The Sunday Game panel.
The retired Kerry GAA star is set to become a regular pundit on The Sunday Game for the coming season.
He will join Kilkenny hurling great Henry Shefflin and fellow Kerry legend Pat Spillane, as well as Dessie Dolan, Liam Sheedy, Tomás Ó Sé, Anthony Daly, Ciaran Whelan and Eddie Brennan.
However, Brolly, who has been a consistent critic of the Gooch – who he famously dismissed for lacking a “warrior mentality” – has been suspiciously left off the list of the panel revealed by the broadcaster.
