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.

He tells us about his extraordinary life in broadcasting, commentating alongside David Frost for the Rumble In The Jungle, farming in County Clare and his breakdown of this weekend’s big title fight between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker.
