Episode 978: MON Extends, Rassie’s Move, Munster And Leinster’s Next Level, Scotland We Love You, Permutation Wankers
Martin O’Neill appears to have agreed a contract extension until 2020. Ken wonders about the timing of this and questions how successful he has been in his time with Ireland.

Hardcore rugby fans might not appreciate it, but for most people the season starts this weekend, with the traditional meeting of Munster and Leinster, one week out from the start of the European Cup.
Shane Horgan and Gerry Thornley are on hand to preview what could conceivably be described as the biggest, best-attended rivalry in club rugby, with over 46,000 tickets already sold. Do Leo Cullen and Stuart lancaster need to win a competition this year, and is the delayed Rassie Erasmus departure hurting Munster in the long term?
The Springboks’ assistant coach Johann van Graan will succeed Rassie Erasmus as the Munster Director of Rugby.https://t.co/pTZbz2zzuN

We also thank Scotland for their continued efforts across the generations to help us qualify for football tournaments – another 1-0 win over Slovakia last night helping us out no end as we face Moldova tonight, and Wales on Monday.
Plus there’s fiery tackles, fighting cocks and #PermutationWankers.
