We are launching an assault on two fronts on world sport this week, as our squad for the rugby World Cup is announced, and the Irish men’s football team is readying itself for Switzerland in the Aviva tomorrow night.

We sent Ken to FAI headquarters to hear from Mick McCarthy, a press conference for journalists who get up early in the morning… and Ken. We’re pretty much free of injury, and there are reasons to be hopeful ahead of the biggest game of our Euro 2020 campaign so far.

Gerry Thornley of the Irish Times joins us to talk about a roller-coaster couple of weeks for the Irish rugby team, with Devin Toner’s omission, the squad announcement leaking, a hammering at Twickenham, Joe’s Tuesdays and Pichot’s pops.

Plus there’s pissing inside the tent, losing our minds during the rugby World Cup, and Ken’s odyssey to Abbotstown.
