Episode 1649: Munster’s Game Theory, Connacht Guts, Larmour And Cooney Power Up, Michael Conlan’s Ice-Cold Revenge
Munster are still very much alive in their pool of the European Rugby Champions Cup, but they will rue missing out on a bonus point on Saturday against Saracens in London.
Shane Horgan talks to us about on-field decision-making, the magic of Larmour and Cooney, loose lips on the sideline, and Connacht’s battling win over Gloucester that still gives them a mathematical chance of making it through to the European Cup quarter-finals.
We speak to Michael Conlon, after he went to 13-0 in his professional boxing career, with a win in Madison Square Garden on Saturday night against his last ever opponent in the amateur ranks – the man who beat him in the Rio Olympics and which sparked one of the abiding Irish memories of those games.
Michael Conlan avenges his controversial loss from the 2016 Olympics vs Vladimir Nikitin with a Unanimous Decision victory.
