Episode 2743: Pulling For Ireland, Farrell’s Happy Camp, The Boks Are Different, Fiji Fly
Ken hasn’t always pulled for the team of us but the anti rugby discourse is sending him the other way. Can Irish rugby hold onto its newest fan?
We chat to Shane Horgan and Gerry Thornley about Ireland’s improved lineout, their ability to cope with South Africa’s defence, Andy Farrell’s bench options, Fiji’s demo job on Australia and if teams should fear England in a potential semi-final.
Plus there’s live show news, Dave Kilcoyne on Farrell’s happy camp and Gloria Gaynor.
