Episode 1157: Leinster’s Good Vibes, Leo And Lancaster, Racing Built For Speed – European Cup Final Preview
It is the consensus view that Leinster have been the best team in the European Rugby Champions Cup this year, now all they have to do is go and show that superiority on the biggest day in Northern hemisphere club rugby, against the form team in the Top 14.
Shane Horgan, Matt Williams and Gerry Thornley preview a massive game in the careers of a new generation of Irish players. The time is now for Leinster to add a trophy to the popular acclaim coming their way, says Shane Horgan, while Mattie and Gerry have differing views on the challenge they face in Racing 92.
Is James Lowe the greatest vibes man in the history of rugby, and can he cut out the defensive errors in the final? Does Leo Cullen deserve some of the Stuart Lancaster praise? Are Racing a team of individuals, or are we underestimating their coaching team? And will the world’s greatest ever outhalf, Dan Carter, add the one trophy missing from his C.V?
Ken offers his travel tips to those traveling to Bilbao (go to San Sebastian), and gives us his ‘worst museums of the world’ top 2, Southampton survive the drop (or do they), and there was a hidden insult in the middle of our Nesbitt-watch from Monday’s show.
