Ireland's impressive rearguard, Rassie Erasmus is no coaching Messiah & why Eddie Jones needs more sleep
Luke Fitzgerald, Will Slattery and Jonathan Bradley look back on Ireland's epic win over South Africa on the latest episode of The Left Wing.
Although it was billed as the world's best attack vs the world's best defence, Luke and Jonathan were more impressed with Ireland's rearguard action against the reigning champions.
However, there was plenty of criticism for some of Rassie Erasmus' selection decisions and tactics as South Africa came up short.
Ireland's preparations for Scotland, their bench options and Eddie Jones' Australia debacle are all up for discussion.

Rugby has laws
Great podcast great discussions an a nice mix of opinions. But Luke, you were a professional rugby player, please please remember rugby has laws not rules. As an ex ref and player it is a simple thing and it differentiates our spot from others. Still a big fan
Daily RWC episodes without Luke Fitzgerald excellent!
The previous ones with Fitzgerald are dreadful! The Indo have an excellent rugby journo team, why not use them...Cian and Ruadhri together now put the podcast up with OTB, 42, RTÉ, 2nd Captains etc. Keep this winning team boys....
Good rugby podcast
Probably more suited to Leinster fans but good chats from Luke and Will.
