Episode 1540: The Dublin/Mayo Rivalry Unpacked, Ireland’s Rugby Season Begins In Earnest, Murph’s Mammy’s Guide To The Sporting Weekend
It’s a huge weekend of sport, and Frances Murphy has marked your viewing card. Primary in many people’s minds will be the latest instalment in the Dublin/Mayo rivalry.
But can it really be a rivalry if one team keeps winning – 5-time All-Ireland winner Denis Bastick is in studio to unpack just why these groups of players don’t have too much time for each other, why it’s good to have players pissed off in any squad, and why the game-plan for these two teams is a ‘copy and paste’ job after the last 6 years of fierce competition.
The rugby season is back, which means Shane Horgan is back – and today’s he’s talking about why these World Cup warm-up games are so strange, why players need to avoid the temptation of trying to stand out, and trying to identify the different motivations at play.
