Episode 802: Irish Failings, Mighty Chariot, Women On Grand Slam Hunt
For the second Six Nations in a row, Ireland have under-performed at crucial moments. With our championship hopes in tatters after Friday’s spirit crushing defeat in Cardiff, Denis Hickie and Gerry Thornley discuss Ireland’s familiar failings in the opposition 22, where blame needs to be apportioned, and what we can focus on ahead of England in the Aviva next Saturday night.
Ireland’s women meanwhile have taken four wins from four in the Championship this year, and central to their run has been the continued excellence of outside centre Jenny Murphy. After 15 months out of the game through injury, she returned to the green jersey in the opening match against Scotland and scored a last-minute, bonus-try winner, and has continued in a similar vein since.
