Rothco has created the third season of "The Toughest Trade," for AIB Bank and the Gaelic Athletic Association. This branded entertainment documentary series continues to test the theory that amateur GAA players can compete at a professional level.In this season, Donegal footballer Michael Murphy joins top rugby side Clermont Auvergne while on the flip side, Welsh rugby star Shane Williams takes on life as an amateur with F.C. Glenswilly. Then in episode two, Wexford hurler Lee Chin travels to Canada to try his hand at Ice hockey with NHL team the Vancouver Canucks. In exchange, Canucks star Alex Auld heads to Wexford to play hurling with Faythe Harries. Out of those sports I only know hockey, really, but it sounds like an interesting enough premise that I would watch for sure.

For anyone lucky enough to live in Ireland, or have access to their TV, The Toughest Trade will air on channel RTÉ2 tomorrow, March 1st, 2017 at 9.30pm and Fri 10th March 2017 at 10.35pm.
