The Big Snow of 2018 is over, and after a weekend of sport denuded by the weather, we still have plenty to chew on this Monday afternoon.

Team Sky, David Brailsford and Bradley Wiggins stand indicted again after the release of a report by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select parliamentary committee which outlines how Team Sky gamed the anti-doping rules to help their riders.
I find it so sad that accusations can be made, where people can be accused of things they have never done which are then regarded as facts. I strongly refute the claim that any drug was used without medical need. I hope to have my say in the next few days & put my side across.

Jeremy Whittle of The Times joins us to talk about the reputational damage done to everyone involved in Team Sky on the back of this damning report.
My thoughts on why the DCMS report confirms that time’s up for Brailsford https://t.co/8dFOss8FDK

Jim Hamilton was on the last Scottish team to win in Dublin, in 2010, and he talks to us about Scotland’s woeful away form, Ireland’s imposing home form, and why that doesn’t necessarily mean this Saturday is a foregone conclusion.

Plus there’s frozen Amsterdam, the team GB tide of public opinion, and Mumford and Sons.
So @SecondCaptains @EoinMcDevitt @saveciaranmurph …..looks like Katie Couric has been completely vindicated. Does this mean we’ve just experienced a little ice age? https://t.co/kmn56PmCMp
