Episode 1472: Munster Can’t Break Semi-Final Hoodoo, Armagh Outlast Down In A Classic, Ken Scouts Glasgow Rugby
Munster have now lost 8 semi-finals, and 2 finals since they last won a trophy. Many people saw last Saturday’s Pro14 semi-final against Leinster in the RDS as a must-win game, but what they were left with was more questions, departing coaches and a thoroughly bewildered-looking head coach and captain.
Former Munster player James Coughlan and Gerry Thornley try and assess their next move as they look to progress, while Leinster have another final to look forward to, this one against Glasgow in Celtic Park next weekend.
Oisin McConville joins us to talk about an extraordinary game in the Ulster championship which saw Armagh beat Down and win their first game in the province since 2014.
Rian O’Neill posted eight points for the winners.https://t.co/XbVtx9V6c4
