Episode 2639: Leinster V La Rochelle Preview, Hooray For Corporate Synergies, Ref Tribe
Ken’s passionate review of Air (Ben Affleck and Matt Damon) on yesterday’s show has got the ball rolling on some other great movies about brands.
The Stormers (of Cape Town) have been eager to inform Munster fans that their raucous celebrations at the end of the Leinster-Munster semi-final had nothing to do with avoiding Leinster, and a lot to do with corporate synergies.
Shane Horgan and Gerry Thornley help us preview the Champions Cup final between Leinster and La Rochelle. Does Leinster’s loss to Munster, and the manner of it, and where it happened, have an impact on them this week? Is home advantage as big a factor as most assume? Can Leinster overcome La Rochelle’s power game? Are La Rochelle in their heads after two wins in two seasons? And are Leinster better than last season given most players have a Slam and series win in NZ now under their belts?
Plus there’s the appetising prospect of becoming a Premier League referee, and who needs Jude Bellingham when you have Curtis Jones.
