This evening's Kildare Scoreboard will review all the weekend's action from 6.30pm.

 

GAELIC GAMES

Mayo's Lee Keegan has retired from inter-county football.

The 33-year-old was Footballer of the Year in 2016 and also won five All Stars.

Keegan collected seven Connacht medals, as well as the 2019 National League title.

Mayo manager Kevin McStay says the example set by the Westport man will 'continue to inspire Mayo for many years to come'.


RUGBY

Owen Farrell could miss the start of England's Six Nations campaign after being cited for a dangerous tackle.

He'll face a disciplinary hearing tomorrow after his shoulder made contact with the head of an opponent in Saracens' win against Gloucester on Friday.

A ban may rule him out of Steve Borthwick's first game in charge against Scotland next month.


SOCCER

Arsenal will look to book an FA Cup fourth round meeting with Manchester City tonight.

The Premier League leaders are away to League One club Oxford United.

Kick-off is at 8pm.


SNOOKER

Ronnie O'Sullivan begins his bid for a record eighth Masters title this lunchtime.

The world number one plays Luca Brecel at Alexandra Palace in London, and that gets underway at 1pm. 

This evening, John Higgins goes up against Jack Lisowski.


TENNIS

Tennis players at this month's Australian Open won't be required to take Covid-19 tests and could play even if they have the virus.

The tournament director says the policy reflects what’s happening in Melbourne’s wider community.

There have been strict rules at the Grand Slam over the past two years, while Novak Djokovic was deported 12-months ago over his vaccine status.


RACING

Jockey Jack Kennedy is set for an extended period away from racing having sustained a fractured leg.

The injury has been confirmed after a fall at Naas yesterday, with 'Top Bandit' suffering a fatal injury in the incident.

It's not yet know if Kennedy will be able to ride at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
 

A reminder to join Paul Power this evening for Kildare Scoreboard from 6.30pm, where we’ll review Saturday’s O’Byrne Cup defeat for Kildare against Louth and we’ll hear from manager Glenn Ryan.

PLUS, soccer, rugby, horse racing and more.
