Episode 1051: Rugby InterPros Provide Festive Feast, Shane Long Ends Goal Drought, The Marshmallow Test

Gavin Duffy and Gerry Thornley preview the next round of interpros, admire James Lowe’s offloads, examine Ultan Dillane’s return to form, Kieran Keane’s masterplan, fret over Ulster’s pack, and we ask is Jordan Larmour the best young attacking talent we’ve seen since Brian O’Driscoll?
Shane Long finally ended his goal drought in the Premier League last night, but some people were a little upset he was being made fun of. We outline why we think Shane would do well to grin and bear it.
Granted, Shane Long has been on a wretched run of form, but this was an unnecessary cheap shot against him by Match of the Day. Very mean-spirited against a player clearly struggling from a crisis of confidence. #MOTD #Southampton pic.twitter.com/1JALVNMre8
