People couldn’t get over how bloody sound Shane Williams was on The Toughest Trade

What a man

What a gent…

Shane Williams made the step across to Glenswilly in Donegal to try his hand at GAA in the latest series of The Toughest Trade.

He came across initially and met with Ulster and Ireland winger Tommy Bowe, who gave him some handy tips on the round ball to help ease the transition.

He was greeted in Glenswilly by some of the toughest training he’s experienced in many years and in his words, “It was one of the most tiring skill sessions”, he’d ever done in his life.

But it was off the pitch where Shane Williams made the biggest impact.

People loved his attitude and fun nature with a lot of people noting that he was just another one of the lads during trainings and in the dressing room.

His visit to the local national school also endeared him in the hearts of many and he even promised to come back to the club later in the year to see how Glenswilly are getting on.
