Robinson Services Premier League Round-up (16-05-2022)

Ross Adair Interview
Ross Adair may be playing for a new club, but it's been very much a case of same blistering performance and intent. The 28-year-old was one of the more high-profile transfers during the off-season after he swapped CSNI for reigning Gallagher Challenge Cup champions CIYMS.

Mark Adair Interview
Mark Adair's first game as Northern Knights captain may have ultimately ended in defeat, but there were still positives to take from their season opener.
