Episode 1864: Irish Rugby’s Big Blue, Ronnie And The Kid, Jose Solves The Curious Case Of The Shrinking Goals
Leinster had gone the entire season unbeaten up until last Saturday’s European Cup quarter-final defeat to Saracens, but rarely can one defeat have so thoroughly undermined everything that preceded it.
Leo Cullen said Leinster were “spooked”, which mirrors what Joe Schmidt was saying about Irish players being “a bit broken” in recent years. So we get two of the smartest ex players in Irish rugby, Shane Horgan and former Munster and Grenoble hooker, Duncan Casey, to discuss what is behind all the unforced errors, what the provincial coaches need to fix and with Stockdale and Larmour looking shaky in recent times, what Ireland’s back three should be for the two 6 Nations games next month.
Plus there’s Rob Kearney’s lasting legacy, a dastardly North Macedonian plot expertly sniffed out by Jose Mourinho, the Carabao Cup continues to dazzle Ken’s mind, and there’s the young snooker player from Cork who rammed some criticism down Ronnie O’Sullivan’s throat last night.
