PICK OF THE DAY
The Late Late Show RTÉ One, 9.35pm
Ryan Tubridy returns for his ninth season at the helm of the chat show. Which means there are about 93 sleeps to the Toy Show. Sport
Shamrock Rovers v Cork City (RTÉ2, 7.30pm) should have a bit of bite as the champions-elect come up against a Dublin side who’ve probably been their toughest opponents this season. World Cup qualifiers include Malta v England
(TV3, ko 7.45pm) and San Marino v Northern
Ireland (Sky Sports Mix, ko 7.45pm). In rugby, the Pro12 has become the Pro14, thanks to the addition of two South African teams, and it gets underway at Musgrave Park in Cork with
Munster v Benetton Treviso (TG4, ko 7.35pm).
