    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.

    S02E43 : “Lions, Rainbow Cup, Pro 16 : A view from South Africa featuring Andy Daniel (@scrum5ive)”

    After devoting over a dozen pods to the never ending debate over Lions selection, it was about time I had a look at the tour from the Springbok side of things and I found just the right person to do that in Andy Daniel, who runs the excellent Scrum5 blog and he also hosts an online show all about South African rugby so I asked him how the tour was being seen down there as well as what kind of team we can expect for the test series.  He also offered some great insight on the pros and cons of the Bulls, Stormers, Lions and Sharks switching to the European framework.

    S02E42 : “Leinster Soul-Searching Panel featuring Keego (@nkeegan), Joe Sheppard (@ThreeBODRugby) & Richard Mifsud (@RichMif)”

    It hasn’t been a great week or two for Leinster rugby fans so I asked three of them to join me for a session of soul searching.  I did my best to find positives in my writeup but the lads did a good job of bringing me back to reality.  We also talked about the social media ban from the weekend with a bit of Lions chat thrown in as well for good measure.
