Kane Wants Out, Liam Hayes On One Of The Great Editions Of The Player’s Chair, US Murph The Hypeman
Variety, they say, is the spice of life and there’s been plenty of it on the World Service this week: from Ken on whether Harry Kane will get the Spurs exit he’s wrangling for, to US Murph on the LeBron – Steph Curry showdown we were gifted, to our conversation with World Rugby chief medical officer Dr Éanna Falvey about the complex relationship between rugby and concussion, which we’ll be releasing tomorrow.
Stunning, breath-taking moments in this incredible interview with Liam Hayes, a man I loathed & secretly idolised as a young Dubs fan. So sad, it made me burst out crying at one point… Richie gets better and better at this lark. Fair play to you Liam, my heart goes out to you https://t.co/M6ayCkEM1i

The show that a lot of members felt was one of the best we’ve ever put out, though, was the latest edition of the Player’s Chair, where Meath legend Liam Hayes joined Richie Sadlier and spoke really honestly and movingly about the death of his brother by suicide, his own mortality and his relationship with his playing past.
Click the image at the top of the page to play the show. Monday’s shows are free to all and to listen to our programming throughout the rest of the week, join the Second Captains World Service.
