Episode 785: Connacht’s New Man, In Camp With Andy Lee, Sexton Update, Pint Baby Revealed
Andy Lee is returning to the ring in Madison Square Garden in New York, on St Patrick’s weekend. We discuss the dynamic of sharing the gym with the man responsible for taking his world title away from him – Billy Joe Saunders. He also tells us how talking up the fight helps him, as well as helping to sell tickets.
As of today, Connacht have a new head coach, and it’s a former New Zealand school teacher with a history of attacking rugby… which bodes well for Kieran Keane’s future in Ireland. Gerry Thornley broke the news last week, and he was at Carton House today for the latest injury updates ahead of Ireland/France this weekend.
Rory McIlroy was playing golf with President Trump on Sunday morning, and Ken provides us with some valuable context.
