Sporting superstars are the pride of Northern Ireland

Editor's Viewpoint

What a weekend it has been for sport, and for Northern Ireland sportsmen in particular.

Congratulations are due to Johnny Rea, who became the new Superbike winner - the first Northern Ireland person since Joey Dunlop and Brian Reid to be a world motorcycling champion.

On the rugby field, Ulster's Iain Henderson played an important role in Ireland's impressive opening win against Canada in the World Cup. This promises to be an exciting tournament, and after the stunning victory of Japan over South Africa it is clear that anything can - and probably will - happen.
