According to reports legendary Kilkenny hurler Henry Shefflin is set to reject British broadcaster Sky in order to join RTE.

The former Kilkenny All Star and most decorated hurler of all time had confirmed earlier this week that he held discussions with both  the national broadcaster and Sky Sports about working on with them for the forthcoming championship. However it is understood that Shefflin will not join the British company, and will instead choose to give his views on The Sunday Game.

Mr Shefflin recently spoke of his enthusiasm about getting involved in analysis this summer having announced his retirement last month. Shefflin said: “I’m looking at one or two options, what best suits myself. It’s commitment-wise again. I’d said to (his wife) Deirdre at home that my commitments were going to finish – if you’re involved with that it’s a commitment again. It’s just to weigh that up and see what best suits myself. “I’m hoping to do a bit of work this summer, definitely. I’m going to miss it so I’d like to be involved in it. Being part of the games, not just Kilkenny but the other games as well, will give me a good footprint into it.”
