Episode 1305: Rice, Real, Rangers
It may not be international week but Irish players are nevertheless making some headlines. Matt Doherty has lost 2.5kg. And there is some bad news about a high-level meeting at St George’s Park.

We discuss why Kaepernick’s struggle and sacrifice is so different to that of Smith and Carlos, and the pathos in “fighting to recapture territory that we thought was won a long time ago.”
