The Toughest Trade is quickly becoming one of our favourite programmes on television. This season, Mayo’s Aidan O’Shea is crossing the pond to try his hand at American Football.
Meanwhile, former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Roberto Wallace has come the opposite direction, and will line out for Breaffy in a challenge game this weekend.
While there are many transferable skills for a wide receiver to bring to gaelic football, none are more potent than their fielding ability. In this clip, Wallace rises high to slap the ball, which ends up hitting the cross bar.
The 6ft 4in giant then showed that he can shoot with power, rattling the cross bar with a ferocious strike.
Ok, he probably has to work on accuracy to avoid the posts next time, but he looks like a serious talent.

Just look at how high he leaps. The man must be squatting telephone numbers!
