Episode 1071: Conor O’Shea On Green Shoots, Ireland And Eddie Jones, America’s First Alt-Right Athlete, Schmidt On Form, Federer’s Fallibility
We are now just 8 days from the start of the 2018 Six Nations, and while most of our attention will be on the Stade de France on opening day, another Irishman will also be under the spotlight – Italy head coach Conor O’Shea.

We speak to Conor about his evangelical approach to the Italy project, facing England, dealing with Eddie Jones, Ireland’s chances, and tending to the green shoots.
This should have been the best week of Tennys Sandgren’s life – the first American male to make the quarter-finals of the Australian Open since 2010, it marked the highpoint of the 26 year old’s sporting career. But a quick look through his twitter history revealed an interest in the alt-right – he denies that classification of his political beliefs, but he’s deleted almost his entire twitter history nevertheless, and is now being called America’s first alt-right athlete – we talk to author and journalist Johnette Howard about it all.

Plus there’s Federer’s fallibility, Eddie Jones nonsense, Joe Schmidt on Zebo and Larmour, and Larry Nassar’s day of reckoning.
