19 pics of sports stars trying their hand at hurling

Some of the grips are not orthodox but they gave it a lash anyway.

RICHIE MCCAW AND some of his All Blacks teammates tried their hand at hurling yesterday in Westmanstown.

They were put through their paces by some of Dublin’s GAA stars at an event hosted by AIG, who sponsor both sides.

But McCaw’s not the first sports star to wield a camán in style or anger. Cristiano Ronaldo, Dan Carter and Muhammad Ali are amongst others who have tried their hand at the ancient game.
