Set your box to record now.

You may remember last year when Aidan O’Shea tried his hand at American football and Brendan Maher tested out his cricket skills in the The Toughest Trade.

The show made for enthralling television as it aimed to answer one of the questions that has crossed every GAA fan’s mind, could our bunch of dedicated amateurs hack it in the professional game?

Michael Murphy is the latest GAA star to cross codes as he hops over to Top 14 rugby side Clermont Auvergne to practice some kicking with French international Morgan Parra, and see how he fairs in the world of professional rugby.

Ahead of the first episode on March 1, Michael Murphy teased about whether he can make it with the oval ball.

“It’s a professional setup, it’s a professional environment and it’s going to be full on. We’ll see if I can sink or swim,” the Donegal skipper said.

On the opposite side, former Wales and Ospreys player Shane Williams travels to Donegal where he will see if he can turn his considerable skill to the round ball and master GAA.

We will definitely be tuning in for this episode…
