Episode 798: Welsh In-Fighting, Unloved Hurling, Vicious Verbals
Ireland sample Friday night Six Nations rugby for the first time this weekend, so it’s never too soon to start the build-up. Jonathan Davies talks to us about Welsh in-fighting, low morale, and George North being offered up as a sacrificial lamb to the press.
With GAA Congress taking drastic action to change the gaelic football structure, has hurling been put into the shade? Nicky English says football may just have forced hurling’s hand, and real hurling men all over the land are worried about the future of their game.
Surely a chronic imbalance in July/Aug 2018 . 19 football games 5 hurling . How are we going to show off our sport fairly .might call it GFA

Other questions are asked – like what would a 6-inch “Hurling Man” figurine look like? What is the exact nature of the vicious verbal sledging that apparently goes on in Wales-Ireland games? And why doesn’t rugby just go to 7-aside… there would be many more tries, and hell, it might even get in the Olympics? All will be revealed in Episode 798 of the Second Captains Podcast…
