OTB AM ROUND-UP | City's Pep, Davy's crowning glory & where next for Jackson?


Share this article


This morning's OTB AM round-up is brought to you in association with Michael O'Leary's gurning theatrics after Tiger Roll's romp to...well, near-defeat on Saturday. Our hope that Mick might have celebrated his win with 'free flights for everybody on the island' was sadly misplaced, so we will have to make do with a bumper weekend of sporting action and articles. Which, on balance, isn't SO bad.

On OTB AM this morning, we discuss the somewhat anti-climactic victory for Pep Guardiola, whose City team triumphed in absentia. West Brom's fans can be forgiven for wishing such showpiece for performances were even one-a-penny, let alone ten. Dan McDonnell of the Irish Independent was there to discuss City's blue Sunday, as well as all the action from the League of Ireland.

Equine aficionado John Duggan is in studio to melodramatically tear up his betting slip, as we all agree through gritted teeth that racing is about much more than making a few bob. Davy Russell's victory was really one for the good guys, and caps an emotional season for Davy after the death of his mother. Sub-editors rejoiced, as it's easier to come up with a pun on 'Tiger' rather than 'Ucello Conti'. At this time of the morning, anyway - no doubt we will wake at 4am with tabloid gold.

Ruaidhri O'Connor was in studio to look through the state of play for Irish rugby, on a weekend where the Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding contractual situation was finally solved. On the pitch, Ruaidhri focused on the Champions Cup prospects of Leinster and Munster as well as all the Pro14 chaos.

Below are a pick of this morning's papers, as well as a selection of articles from Off the Ball this weekend, including a fantastic piece with David Haye prior to his rematch with Tony Bellew, including an apology for his out-of-line comments before the last fight.
