Don’t go anywhere… here’s the sport on TV this weekend…

There’s a storm a-brewing… so batten down the hatches this weekend with this lot.

IT’S JANUARY, WE’RE all broke after Christmas and God has forsaken us with a violent storm.

If you’re not going to stay in this weekend with a pizza and the football, you never will. Here’s what you can expect to appear before your drooling face if you join us on the couch over the coming days…

  • One sit in for: for those of you who like your rugby coverage in English, the Munster v Treviso tie is on RTÉ.
  • One to Sky-plus: It’s NFL play-off but if Tebow-time is past your bedtime, set the Sky box to record the Pittsburgh-Denver game. It could well be epic.
  • One to skip: The Darts. It’s not the good one.
