Last night’s first leg match away to Seville in the last 16 of the Champions League was Manchester United’s biggest game of the season, and they started the game with their record signing Paul Pogba on the bench.

Dion Fanning of SportsJoe and Rory Smith of the New York Times join us to talk about how Jose Mourinho has found himself in this position, their lack of ambition, and the danger of a 0-0 result away from home in a first leg.

Joe Schmidt has made 5 changes to the Ireland team to face Wales on Saturday, and as we are forced to leave out 3 Lions from our last match, Wales welcome 3 into theirs. Matt Williams is scared, and does a reasonably good job of scaring us, too.

Plus there’s a full-duck scumbag of the week, and another ‘confident-Welsh-rugby-player’ soundbite for the scrapbook.
