Episode 902: Cork On The March, Kilkenny Dumped Out, The Lions Share, Pitch Invasions
Cork are the Munster champions, and powered by a cohort of brilliant young players, the dip we’ve all been expecting as they adjusted to their new reality just hasn’t arrived. We analyse the fresh influences on Cork, including Gary Keegan, former Irish boxing supremo.
We said a few weeks ago that there are 7 teams capable of winning the All-Ireland senior hurling championship this year – and with 6 teams left after this week, who was dumped out? Brian Cody’s Kilkenny. Michael Duignan and Eoin Kelly talk us through it all.
After 4 years of build-up, 8 weeks of frantic touring, and 3 brilliant tests, the Lions and the All Blacks shared the spoils on Saturday morning. Shane Horgan suggests the success of the Owen Farrell and Johnny Sexton axis could be a lesson for how rugby is played in the future.
Plus there’s the Peter Pan of Rossie pitch invasions, kissing your sister, and the future of brainy rugby.
