Episode 2192: Can Ireland Repeat Against Argentina, Carbery Confidence, Rassie’s Ban, Clickbait Ciarán
We may be still basking in the warm glow of Ireland’s win over New Zealand but there’s a potentially tricky match against perennial World Cup banana skins Argentina in wait this weekend for Andy Farrell. Argentina got their first win over the All Blacks just last year, and we’re joined today by one of the architects of that victory in Michael Cheika, and by Shane Horgan.
We chat about the likelihood that Ireland will be able to replicate the kind of performance we saw last weekend in the long-term, Joey Carbery’s continuing recovery as he starts at 10 on Sunday, and Rassie Erasmus’ two-month ban, handed down by World Rugby this week after he was found guilty of six offences, including threatening referee Nic Berry during the Lions tour.

The Lady in Red origin story features heavily in today’s show and Ken asks the question we’ve all been too afraid to ask – did Chris de Burgh run out of lyrics? https://t.co/6Pml8GtmAy… pic.twitter.com/vlpilILax6
