Yesterday Walsh spoke of his love for rugby and his respect for Munster and Ireland star Ronan O’Gara.
However there are aspects of Gaelic football that Walsh is not a fan of.
“As a kid I played them all. I much preferred playing rugby. I wasn’t overly big, I was light and I found rugby easier to play,” Walsh said. “I always hated — and I still hate — the off-the-ball stuff in the GAA. I hate it. I can never understand it.”
Referring to an incident in a recent Dublin v Kerry clash where Eamon Fennell was sent off after an altercation with Bryan Sheehan, Walsh added: “I consider the Dublin guy that hit the Kerry lad three weeks ago a chicken... he’s gutless. If you’re going to hit him stand and look him in the eye. That’s what I don’t like about Gaelic football.”
