Stephen Kenny has announced his first Republic of Ireland squad as senior manager, and already someone’s got the hump.

Michael Obafemi’s been left out of the squad despite being the joint Irish top scorer in the Premier League this year; is he right to feel aggrieved? Kenny has also already had to face a former international casting aspersions on his credentials for the job, comments he doesn’t seem to be breaking a sweat over.

We’re joined by Gavan Casey of the42.ie to chat about Katie Taylor’s rematch win over Delfine Persoon in Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom bubble at the weekend, a win which should put to bed any questions about the contested decision in their first bout.

Plus there’s talking cabbages, Michael Obafemi’s gaming throne, and the return of the Coombe Raider.
