Tommy Bowe is making an interesting career change during his injury lay-off

A nice change from being tackled by men twice your size.

Tommy Bowe was only on the pitch a couple of moments when he had to come off injured.

The Monaghan man has been sidelined ever since with a broken ankle and has now decided on a minor career change in his absence from rugby.

Bowe will be part of the presenting team for RTE One’s travel series Getaways alongside Joe Lindsay, Mairead Ronan and Vogue Williams.

Speaking about his involvement in the show, Bowe said:

 "I’m very excited to be part of the Getaways team this year.

"I was disappointed after my injury in the Six Nations but this gives me an opportunity to explore another avenue while preparing myself for next season. Being a part of a great series like Getaways is a dream come true for me and I’m looking forward to the new challenge."

Bowe will look at the non-party side of Ibiza in his appearance on the show.

The show will be in its sixth season and hosts will also visit the French Riviera, Porto and New York.

It will air in early 2018.
