Episode 875: Lions Lose In Auckland, New Zealand Lesson, Diarmuid Connolly In Trouble Again
The Lions have suffered their first tour defeat, at the hands of the Auckland Blues – the worst-performing New Zealand franchise in this year’s Super Rugby. This may not bode well for the chances of a future win on this Tour, but 2001 Lions manager Donal Lenihan explains why they still have a chance against the All Blacks.
Diarmuid Connolly is in hot water again, with a 12-week ban last night proposed by the CCCC of the GAA. Whatever about the likelihood of Connolly actually serving this ban, Malachy Clerkin joins us to discuss why Connolly can’t stop himself from getting involved in incidents such as this.

Could a 12-week suspension be what’s required to show him there are consequences for his actions? Or is full-throated defence of your player, as is GAA tradition regardless of the rights and wrongs of the incident, the only course of action available to Jim Gavin and the Dublin county board?
Plus we hear about the three most famous people from the town of Urbana in the great state of Illinois, Ken gives his hot take on the Connolly witch hunt, and we cower in fear at the New Zealand media, who after the All Blacks, are possibly the second most impressive entity in world rugby.
