Episode 1340: Mullinalaghta Defy The Odds And The Gods, JJ’s 10, James Ryan Rules, Ulster Celebrate
Clubs like Mullinalaghta (population: 447) just don’t beat clubs like Kilmacud Crokes – it just, shouldn’t happen. And yet in Tullamore yesterday, that’s exactly what happened. Gary Rogers scored a penalty in the last minute of normal time to put them ahead, and he joins us on the show to talk about what it means for his club, for Longford, and for rural Ireland.
Gerry Thornley and Eoin Reddan talk to us about Leinster’s ever-rising expectations of themselves, JJ Hanrahan’s performance at out-half for Munster and Ulster’s joy at their win away to Scarlets.
Meanwhile Stuart Lancaster says everything and nothing about his future; We read the tea leaves.
Plus there’s crannog marsh huts, Judes man to the core Ken Early wraps a consoling arm around the shoulder to his neighbours and friends of a Kilmacud persuasion, and Murph reveals his super-power.
