An Irishman Abroad

6 Nations Special live from Currency Fair HQ: Episode 232

February 23, 2018

This week, Jarlath was joined by Leinster and Ireland legend Bernard Jackman alongside former Munster and Leicester star Johne Murphy in front of a packed house at Currency Fair’s offices in Dublin for a chat about all things Six Nations. The lads spoke about the possibility of bad blood between Joe Schmidt and Warren Gatland (8:00), why ruthlessness is needed to be at the top of your game (15:00) and the poor French attitude to rugby that raises it’s head in certain areas (36:00).

From Johne speaking frankly about why he believes Munster handled the doping situation really badly (45:00) to Andrew Porter being an athletic ‘freak’ (42:00) and the hilarious story of how a total lack of independence can befall a young professional rugby player (29:00) this is a fantastic spirited chat with two top rugby men.
