Episode 2857: No Rashford Dentist’s Chair, The Hangover Match In Marseille, Celebrating Ken
Fresh from his Belfast retreat Marcus Rashford was back scoring for Manchester United, though sadly refusing to do a Gazza’s Dentist’s Chair celebration.

France and Ireland wake up in Marseille today with two heavy world cup hangovers, and it looks like only one of the coaches remembered to bring some Alka Seltzer.
We chat to Ruaidhri O’Connor about Galthie’s man management skills, why the pressure is on France to win, the Tuilagi gene pool, Farrell’s dogs of war, Calvin Nash’s nuts and bolts, and if we will get the luck required for a 6-2 bench to work.
A stacked weekend of sport means a stacked Frances Murphy’s TV Guide – though questions are raised over who is making certain editorial calls. And we celebrate the life – up to now – of a Second Captains OG who has completed another year on planet earth.
