Episode 2559: Ireland Hamstrung, The French View, No Dickheads At Chelsea, Leeds Man Utd Part 1
Andy Farrell likes his players to face adversity but another late hamstring injury, this time to Dan Sheehan, and Conor Murray’s appearance still in doubt, is stretching things a bit far.
We get the French view from Romain Bergogne of L’Equipe, Gordon D’Arcy assesses how Ireland will cope with losing two of their starting front row, and Ruaidhri O’Connor of the Indo joins us from the Ireland camp.
Ken and Murph discuss whether the country should be run a bit more like our rugby team.
We also analyse Man United’s draw with Leeds and Chelsea’s no dickheads policy.
