The Toughest Trade: Michael Murphy & Shane Williams

Donegal All-Star & captain Michael Murphy swaps sports with former Welsh rugby winger Shane Williams as he travels to France to team up with top 14 side Clermont Auvergne. In return, Williams temporarily joins Murphy’s club Glenswilly.

Both players spend a week immersing themselves in their new sport and club before taking part in a final challenge set by AIB, designed to test whether GAA club players can compete at the same level as professional athletes.

Murphy did take part in a training session with local GAA side the Clermont Gaels but unfortunately this didn’t make the final cut. The club did get a shout out in the credits however.
