Episode 2733: Let’s Talk about France v Ireland With Richie Sadlier
We can all agree that for all of our down-beat pre-game previews over the years, this Ireland/France game marks a new departure. There’s just been something so… depressing about this week.
Between Evan Ferguson being ruled out, Matt Doherty and Seamus Coleman’s absence, and John Egan’s injury concern, we just can’t construct an argument for an Irish win.
And yet, with Richie Sadlier in studio, we manage to concoct a few moments of levity. If you were offered a 2-0 loss right now, would you snap their hand off? These are the questions we ask ourselves now.
There’s also Ken on tour, Jonathan Wilson’s moment in the sun, and the one question you can’t ask Michael Sheen.
