WATCH: Tom McGurk takes a bow in his final RTÉ promo

Tom McGurk, star of many a rugby promo, steps down from RTÉ’s coverage tonight - and left us with one final montage.

With three possible Champions at the end of the day’s action, McGurk talks us through the Six Nations points race.

“Today will require all of your fingers and toes, to work out the complications of the points difference,” he tells us.

The broadcasting veteran warns us to forget about shopping or gardening for today and settle in for the rugby - before bowing out in understated style.

Best of luck Tom, you’ll be missed.
