Eoin just can’t quit Eddie Jones, but Ken has read the Jones playbook all the way to the end, and is surprised by nothing any more. We also discuss the rebirth of Matt Doherty… while bemoaning the fact it had to come at the expense of Seamus Coleman.

We chat to Shane Horgan and David Flatman, former England player and now with ITV, about Eddie Jones lowering the bar, Ireland’s new frontrow, if a Tadhg Beirne move can power-up Ireland’s pack and Marcus Smith the patient wonder kid.

Plus there’s French romance, Rassie wanting to be liked, and the most dangerous lead in football.
