Episode 1613: The History Makers, Katie’s Emotional Win, Boks Bludgeon RWC, Ireland’s Big Fix
The Ireland women’s hockey team can’t stop creating history – from a World Cup final, to record crowds, to The Olympics. We talk to Nicci Daly, one of the stars of a team that keep getting it done in tight games and on big occasions.
South Africa were far from perfect and won the Rugby World Cup with a game-plan that lacked ambition and scope, but had the best basics – scrum, lineout, maul, defence – of any team that’s ever played the game. Were England and NZ too idealistic? Are defence coaches the most important men in the game? And we ask Eoin Reddan and Shane Horgan if Ireland were right to be conservative after all, and what the next step should be in the giant fix that’s required.
Plus there’s Katie’s emotional night, styles make fights, Ken’s tribute to Gay Byrne, and Ireland’s peno shootout DNA.
Here’s some Late Late footage we love to add to all the historic and culturally significant moments Gay Byrne introduced to the nation. It’s the first ever six-pack on Irish television. RIP Gay??@ClonesCyclone pic.twitter.com/URub8n3zxV
