    3.02 : "Ireland 2021/22 review featuring Keego (@nkeegan)"

    We recorded right after Springboks A v Lions, so naturally we harped on something completely different!  Seriously though, our hearts aren't really in this tour so we were much more interested in Ireland v USA & the Under 20s and what they mean for the future of Andy Farrell's Ireland.

    S03 E01 : "The Great Lions Tour Harp Off"

    S03 E01 : "The Great Lions Tour Harp Off"

    The teams : THE IMPROBABLES (Neil Keegan & Ian Frizzell) v THE IMPOSSIBLES (Michelle Tobin & Sandy Smith)

    The topics : Lions v Japan, Will/should the tour go ahead, where did all the beer in Murrayfield go, and much more

    The referee : Jeff "Romain" Pagano

    The format : Everyone takes turns harpin' on rugby, sometimes they get points, sometimes they don't, eventually someone wins

    The tagline : If listening gives you a fraction of the fun we had recording this, well I’m not sure what that means because I never was any good with fractions.  

    Shout out to Ciarán Duffy of PostToPost Sport for providing the voice recordings.

    S02 Finale : “The Great Leinster End Of Season Harp-Off”

    S02 Finale : “The Great Leinster End Of Season Harp-Off”

    Well it’s hard to believe but July 5th will be the 2nd anniversary of this pod so what I thought I’d do was make this the show’s Season 2 finale and try something a little different with the format.  I asked four of my top contributors to join me to harp on things like firepit gate, the new branding for the Pro16 plus loads of other things and we tried to make a game of it, you’ll get the idea as we go along.  Basically I wanted to be a lot more like Dara O’Briain of Mock The Week and a lot less like Dara O’Brien of Against The Head but as it was a trial run if I ended up anywhere at all in between those two I’d consider it a result.

    S02E46 : “Pro 16 on TV : What's the ideal deal? featuring Ciarán Duffy (@PostToPostSport), Padraig Kelly (@the2ndRow) & David Topping (@davethewingnut)”

    With eir Sport leaving the market and thus giving up their coverage of the Pro16, I wanted to put the topic of broadcasting front and centre this week by inviting a panel of fellow rugby fans from around the island to talk about what we’d like to see in the new deal.

    S02E45 : “Italian Rugby - New President, New Era introducing Tom Golden from The Italian Rugby Blog (@RugbyItalian)”

    With so much talk about the addition of South African teams to the Pro14 I thought it wouldn’t hurt to check in on Italian rugby to see how they are set for all the changes to come and I found a great English language resource online in The Italian Rugby Blog, penned by Tom Golden who joined me on the pod to chat about the new President of the FIR as well as all the challenges he has ahead of him.
