Episode 2769: The World Cup Curse, Nicolas’ Rusty Cage, Thinking Outside The Boks, England Boo Their Owen
Sure, we could ignore the fact that Ireland lost another RWC knockout game, or we could lean into the pain by discussing curses, chokes and welcoming Diego Albanese on the show – the man who, in 1999, got the trauma ball rolling.
Diego is on with Alex Corbisiero, former England and Lions prop and current NBC analyst, as well as Ruaidhri O’Connor, Irish Independent Chief Rugby Correspondent. We talk to Diego about Cheika’s vibes, to Alex about England fans booing Owen Farrell and to Ruaidhri about Rassie’s innovations, Ireland’s set piece issues and if there will be any SF upsets.
Grunge Week powers on, this time with extra Con Air/The Rock content for some reason, Mark Horgan embraces his inner Michael Buffer, and the football world bows down to Jude Bellingham.
And for the first time ever our Gang’s All Here end-of-year extravaganza moves to the National Stadium in Dublin, on Friday December 1st, and as ever our beloved world service members get first dibs on tickets.
