If you’re after an in-depth analysis of just where Saturday’s Heineken Cup final was won, look no further than this week’s podcast! With Chris (somewhat annoyingly) spot-on with his predictions, we look at exactly how Saracens broke Leinster down, compare the styles of both plays, and have a good few debates about rucks along the way. We then turn to the business end of the Pro14 season, and predict exactly which way those crucial matches will turn.
After a week off, spent watching a fairly drab Ulster match at Ravenhill (or, in Paddy’s case, queueing at the donut stand), we’re back with this week with a spicy new episode!
As the Israel Folau saga rolls on and London Irish sign Paddy Jackson, we’ve plenty of contentious issues to debate, as well as a look ahead to the approaching Heineken Cup final.
Add this to our usual review of the weekend’s fixtures, and hopefully there isn’t a dull moment!
This week’s episode of the Heads Up Rugby Podcast is all about that cracking weekend of Heineken Cup semis! We look in detail at each match and pick apart how it was won: how did Saracens manage to outclass Munster? Are Leinster back to their best? How are things looking ahead of the final? We also discuss the problem of the modern breakdown and how it ought to be solved, as well as how the complex Billy Vunipola issue should’ve been handled. It’s all there, with so much more, so give us a listen!
The one week we took off from the pod happened to be full to the brim of controversy, drama and – easily forgotten in the midst of it all – some really high-quality rugby!
As always, we break it down for you, this week looking at Ulster’s brilliant showing in Edinburgh, how Wasps broke down Exeter in Devon, and how good Gloucester look with Cipriani at the helm.
But, most excitingly of all, we look ahead to the weekend’s Heineken Cup fixtures, which prove to be a pair of crackers.
