    Bonus Ep: 'Everything is driven by the statistician' - Pat Spillane & John Mullane look back on the 2022 season at the Ploughing

    Pat Spillane and John Mullane joined Will Slattery and Michael Verney for a special live edition of the Throw-In at the Ploughing Championships to look back on the 2022 hurling and football seasons.

    In front of a packed crowd at the Irish Independent tent, Spillane said he was worried about the threat of the Dubs next year with the return of Paul Mannion and Jack McCaffrey and he also railed against the influence of statisticians on Gaelic games.

    ‘If you put your right foot into a bucket of boiling water,’ he said. ‘And you put your left foot into a bucket of freezing water, statistically, you’re comfortable!’

    Meanwhile, John Mullane reflected on Limerick’s continued dominance of hurling and welcomed what Davy Fitzgerald could bring to the Waterford panel for the coming season.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

DBB1976 ,

Split?

Would prefer if hurling and football could be split into separate podcasts so that I could just listen to the football and avoid the hurling discussions.

Deise land ,

Good guests but very poor sound.

Good guests on and make good points. But I find it very hard to hear them. Brolly and Mullane are particularly hard to hear clearly, maybe need a better phone connection.

Antoin (from Ireland) ,

Want to give it a 5

Really want to give this podcast a 5 because the punditry is fantastic and just really valid points all the time but the quality of the phone call interviews is sore on the ear, Skype record would make much better quality podcasts
