Episode 1599: Ireland/New Zealand World Cup Quarter-Final Preview With Shane Horgan And Eoin Reddan, AND Joe Canning On Injury, Elimination And Living Without A Manager
The moment is nearing, when we go once more into a World Cup quarter-final. Are we any more likely to win this one than the six before this? Eoin Reddan and Shane Horgan outline the possibilities.
Joe Schmidt has named his team, and has gone for experience in every tight call – is that the thinking required to beat the reigning champions? And how much can we get from our two wins in the last 3 meetings?
Joe Canning is one of the greatest hurlers of his generation, but as we move into the second half of October, he and his Galway team-mates still don’t have a manager, amid interminable county board bungling. He’s searingly honest about what needs to happen next.
Plus there’s mood swings, statistical statements of fact, and the audacity of hope.
