Episode 1176: Brian Hurley On His Comeback From Two ‘Career-Ending’ Injuries, Zidane Leaves Real, Ward V Campbell Part 2
The injury that ended Paul O’Connell’s rugby career, ripping your hamstring off the bone, has signalled the end for a lot of sportspeople. When Cork footballer Brian Hurley suffered that same injury in June 2016, he feared the worst.
When he did the same injury again in his first game back in March 2017, he had every right to give up. Instead, with messages of support from Seamus Coleman along the way, he picked himself up and made it back in time to score the last point of Cork’s win over Tipperary last Saturday, and he joins us on the show today for a brilliant chat about going through the mill, becoming a better person, and being thankful for what you’ve got.
Great win in Thurles last night. Been to hell and back with these 4. All worth it to wear the red jersey again!!See ye in the Pairc ???????????? pic.twitter.com/iJSvPr9mPr
