Episode 1125: Leinster And Munster Face Huge Euro Quarter-Finals, Colonel Bob Sheridan On Commentating On 1000 World Title Fights And Farming In Clare
Munster and Leinster should be feeling pretty confident after Ireland’s Grand Slam, but they face stiff opposition this weekend in the European Rugby Champions Cup – the last 5 winners of the tournament, in fact.
Former Munster legend Barry Murphy and Shane Horgan join us to preview Munster’s game tomorrow in Thomond Park against Toulon, and Leinster’s clash with defending champions Saracens the following day.
And the voice of one of our listeners’ favourite pieces of audio is on the show today too. ‘Colonel’ Bob Sheridan has commentated on over 1,000 world title fights, most memorably for us his call for Andy Lee’s “too many unanswered punches” world title win.
Fancy getting a little emotional on Andy Lee Day on the Second Captains World Service?

This is a brilliant hour of conversation. No polarised ‘debate’ – just honest, insightful & reasonable conversation on where we, as a country, are at in terms of our attitudes towards women & sex in general. Bravo @SecondCaptains, @RichieSadlier & @SineadOCarroll ???????? https://t.co/4HzYeaD7GK
