Eoin is back in the hot seat and Murph And Ken feel his wrath on the latest edition of “egomaniacs”.

We look at the 4 year ban for a Carlow footballer and if money is the main, or only, motivation for sports people taking performance enhancing drugs.

Oli Jager is the best Irish sports person you’ve never heard of. Oli played for Leinster & Ireland schools but when he failed to win an Academy contract at Leinster as a 17-year-old, rather than wallowing in that disappointment, the day after he finished his Leaving Cert, he boarded a flight to New Zealand, having heard about an opportunity to train with the Crusaders academy for a month. From there things took off to the point that he’s now the starting prop for the Canterbury Crusaders, the best side in world rugby.

We chat to Oli about his decision to go over there, proving himself in NZ rugby, what makes Canterbury (10 Super Rugby titles) so successful, working under Ronan O’Gara, life under lockdown, what the future holds, and if he has any plans to come home.

Plus there’s burpees, bombs and reality shocks.
