Episode 1093: It’s The Ireland-Wales “Why Are We Hot Favourites To Win This Game” Six Nations Preview With Shane Horgan, Tom Shanklin and Gerry Thornley
We don’t usually talk odds on this show, but we’ve been installed as 1/4 to beat Wales (9 points on the spread), and that strikes us as a little off. Since when have we ever been able to comfortably beat Gatland’s Wales?

Shane and Gerry talk us through the complex Schmidt/Gatland dynamic, the evolution of CJ Stander, outhalf ‘tells‘, why conceding three tries against Italy might have been a blessing in disguise, and Tom Shanklin tells us why he thinks Dan Biggar’s return at out-half for our opponents might not be such great news… for Wales.

Ben “King Edward I” Te’o gives us a history lesson, we salute ‘Auld Reekie’, energiser slaps, Mystic McDevitt, and call the Scottish rugby team a disgrace to world sport.
@SecondCaptains Lads can you ask #Shag Horgan about James Lowe’s incessant positivity & backslapping after his forwards win a pen. The man himself was fond of an auld slap or two himself, until he was caught on the big screen! https://t.co/yBoR6AnCkq (4.54) https://t.co/tEl0ilkdkb
