    Italy's brilliant campaign, Ireland get the job done and is that it for Peter O'Mahony in a green shirt?

    Italy's brilliant campaign, Ireland get the job done and is that it for Peter O'Mahony in a green shirt?

    Máire Treasa Ní Dhubhghaill is once again joined in the House of Rugby studio by Lindsay Peat and James Downey as they look back on the weekend’s Six Nations action and particularly Ireland’s title win!
     
    They look at Italy’s brilliance in Cardiff, Ireland getting the job done against Scotland, and France coming to fruition against England.
     Will Italy’s campaign be a flash in the pan, or are they cooking something special? France and England show signs of improvement for next year, and just what is happening in Wales?
     Have we seen Peter O’Mahony in an Irish jersey for the last time? What do we need to do to muster a challenge against the Springboks? 
     All this and more on this week’s House of Rugby!

    Ulster's new era, changing Irish attitudes, Jones' blitz defence and Hugo Keenan interview

    Máire Treasa Ní Dhubhghaill is joined in the House of Rugby studio by Lindsay Peat and Pat McCarry as they look back on a weekend of URC rugby and ahead to Ireland's Six Nations clash against England this week. They look at Ulster's start to life without Dan McFarland at the helm, and why it's looking positive so far. They look at Irish attitudes towards being favourites in games and whether that needs to change given our dominance, and will an Irishman wreck the Grand Slam? They dissect Felix Jones' blitz defence and why it hasn't exactly worked so far with England.

Love the show, but a question

Twice you’ve had Springbok all-stars on the show in consecutive weeks. Etzebeth opened the door and you didn’t take it: Siya Kolisi. Kolisi was the story of 2019 and the WC, and impact on the sport, racism, color, history et al. Perhaps you think it was done to death at the time, but I remain impressed and fascinated by his story. EE’s relationship would have been interesting to explore I thought. Next time you get a springbok - this would be an avenue to pursue

Shocking…

This has become a hard listen.. fan of the show the last couple of years but only so many times you can listen to Lindsey talk about how she was great athlete… Very little analysis and the chemistry is awful between hosts..

Potential

Have always been a HOR fan but since the new season started I feel as though it is quite visually based? That’s probably intentional but while listening, it’s annoying when the hosts are watching a load of tries but you can’t see anything. Doesn’t really take into account those listening to the pod. Lacking relevance
