Second Captains Live is the place in Irish television where sport meets entertainment – where the national obsession is discussed with pride, humour and passion. Over the 5 series so far, SCL has combined big name guests with classic RTÉ archive and features such as Boring Irish Sporting Tweets and the most controversial slot on Irish television, the Good Wall. Filmed in front of an enthusiastic live studio audience, the show was nominated for an IFTA in 2015.
