Episode 2718: Earls Lights It Up, Magic Mack, England Are Awful
Ireland eased to a comfortable RWC warm up win over England, but the moment that had everyone cheering was Keith Earls’ tumble-try which reminded us all how much he is loved, how fit he is and how good he is at rugby.
We chat to Ruaidhri O’Connor of the Irish Independent about Earls’ chances of making the squad, Mack and Lowe’s magnificent creations, Ireland’s lineout woes and Dan Sheehan’s injury issues.
Plus there’s awful England, Rhasidat’s run and Ken’s 2007 Stephen Jones/Andrew Sheridan RWC memories.
