Episode 1955: Six Nations Preview, POC Factor, Hogg-Wild
The Six Nations returning in February is a welcome restoration of one of the key moments in any Irish sporting year, so even without fans, what can we expect from this year’s tournament? Shane Horgan and Andrew Trimble tell us why there are lots of reasons for Irish fans to be excited.
The Ireland/Wales rugby rivalry can be pretty defined as a game every year where both teams really think they should win, but this year… Ireland actually should win. We discuss how the sport needs this tournament to be full of entertaining rugby, and what we can expect from a Paul O’Connell-coached Ireland pack.
