Episode 779: Schmidt Skewer, England Roll, Waterford Bounce KK
Ireland got their Six Nations campaign back on track with a straightforward 9-try filleting of a pretty terrible Italy team – Shane Horgan talks to us about the return of Jonny Sexton, and the new France looking a lot like the same old France. Former Welsh legend Martyn Williams was in the Principality Stadium for the game of the weekend between England and Wales. Derek McGrath’s Waterford got some measure of revenge for last summer’s All-Ireland semi-final replay defeat to Kilkenny when they won for the first time in Nowlan Park since 2004 yesterday, and he joins us on the show.
Plus there’s the cultural titan in Eoin’s family tree, land grabs, and a possible return for Murph’s Country Pages. Don’t forget to join The Second Captains World Service now for access to all our shows.
@SecondCaptains @saveciaranmurph lads I’ll pay any amount of money if you could bring back Murphs country pages #bestslot
