Episode 1692: Rugby Heavyweights Stuart Barnes And Gordon Darcy On The 6 Nations – Sack Eddie Jones? Drop Owen Farrell? Drop Conor Murray? Are Wales Mentally Stronger Than Us?
It’s another massive week in the 6 Nations and suddenly Eddie Jones is under pressure, pre-tournament favourites England are reeling, and opportunity knocks for Wales and Ireland. We have rugby royalty in Stuart Barnes and Gordon D’arcy on hand to pique our interest still further.
Stuart believes Owen Farrell is no longer a certain starter and that the captaincy doesn’t suit him, but believes calls for Eddie Jones to be sacked right now are a little premature. Darce meanwhile fills us in on the Irish-Welsh rivalry, and wrestles with the idea that the Welsh are just a little mentally stronger than us.
Until England can think on their feet, Jones will never oversee England’s greatest team, nor will they reach the summit Jones kids himself that he has conquered, writes @SBarnesRugby #SixNations https://t.co/3nE5JGexSo

Plus there’s a quite frankly unmissable Frances Murphy’s TV guide, as the rule-book gets torn asunder, and we also discuss Kyran Bracken, the Loughshinny/Skerries divide, and why Rose could at least have moved over to give Jack some room on the flotsam at the end of Titanic.
