Episode 1978: Galthie’s Bubble, French Waffle, Welsh Providence, Ireland’s Magic Eight
You make your own luck in sport, unless you’re the Welsh rugby team, who on Saturday had a lot of ref and TMO decisions go their way. So is it just that everything always comes up Wales, or are they a doughty, tough, mentally resilient and increasingly skillful side that deserves the Triple Crown and now inevitable Grand Slam?
We talk to Gerry Thornley and Shane Horgan about the series of Covid breaches in French rugby, if Fabien Galthie will get the sack, and what the French Government, the French rugby union and 6N should do about this.
We ask if Ireland can continue to offload against the good teams, if Andy Farrell, with Kelleher, Furlong, Kilcoyne, Henderson, Ryan, Beirne, Connors and Stander, has found his best set of forwards for the Scotland and England games.
Plus there’s Rees Zammit’s poker face and rugby analysis via Kevin Costner and Lewis Dunk.
