    Will and Andrew are back looking at a bumper week of sport in the Highlands! It started off with the sad news that Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Robertson would be temporarily stepping away from the club on compassionate grounds, with former Rangers, Hearts and Dundee player Neil McCann coming in as interim boss.

    Ross County also defeated Celtic, with the guys discussing who stood out in that match, as well as talking about ICT's draw against Alloa on Tuesday and previewing the weekend's matches.

    Teenage rugby sensation Jamie Dobie was named in the senior Scotland squad for the first time ahead of their Six Nations fixture against France - only to see the match postponed due to positive Covid-19 cases in the French camp, while there is also an update on a Athletics Inverness' first virtual events, Nairn County's thoughts on a potential switch to summer football and more!

    It's a bumper week of news in football with the headline being... there isn't really any. At least not for League One, League Two, the Highland League, women's football and beyond. Will and Andrew are joined by Chris Saunderson from the Northern Scot to discuss the latest delay to all of those levels returning to action, as well as Anthony McDonald returning to Inverness Caledonian Thistle and previewing Ross County's game against Hibernian.

    Also on the agenda is an update on the status of the Inverness Half Marathon, and a temporary name change for Ross Sutherland in light of Scotland's Calcutta Cup victory last weekend.

    It has been a busy week for Highland sport with Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ross County both on the road during the week. Will and Andrew discuss those games as well as looking forward to the weekend, asking whether Ross County should be looking up or down, if Jordan White should start against Dundee United, as well as just how bad the weather really was in Arbroath on Wednesday night.

    Also on the agenda this week is the news that the Highland Cross will once again not take place in 2021, new co-captains at reigning Highlands and Islands League champions Clachnacuddin, and a new face on the coaching team at Highland Boxing Academy.
