Episode 2561: Ireland Are Something Special, Doris Delights, Slam Talk, Video Replay Nasties
Ireland came into this game as the disputed number 1 team in the world, but after Saturday’s thrilling win over France few could argue they are now a special group with no limits to what they could achieve.
We chat to Shane Horgan and Gerry Thornley about how entertaining this game was, the ambitious coaching plan, Doris’ 10/10, Ireland’s fitness levels, whether they can be “worked out”, the Atonio high hit, the squad depth and Ross Byrne’s emergence as a reliable back up to Sexton.
Murph goes full JFK magic bullet on the Lowe try TMO angles.
Plus there’s MOTM awards, Sexton’s tears, Corcoran at full throttle and Lowe’s Poker Face.
