Episode 2803: Ten Out Of Tens, Happy Birthday Aaron Aardvark, Inventory Errors, Rugby Is Healing
After Johnny Sexton’s recent retirement we expected to be trawling a barren wasteland for some time to come, searching in vain for the next great outhalf. Then on Saturday night at the Aviva we witnessed two great performances from two exciting 10s – Jack Crowley of Munster, and Ciaran Frawley of Leinster. Is this the start of the FROWLEY™ era?
It was a great game, a 49,000 sellout, with selection subplots and some stand out performances. Rugby…. is….. healing? We chat to Shane Horgan and Ruaidhri O’Connor about the 10s, the tries, the defensive errors, and what it all means for the season ahead.
And we say happy first birthday to Aaron Aardvark, a listener talks about his inventory errors, and Eoin looks at the history of Ireland’s outhalf wars.
