 Talking Rugby with Dave O’Grady

On this week’s show, Alan (Munster), William (Ulster) and Doc (Leinster) join Dave to try to get to the bottom of English Rugby Chief Mark McCafferty’s remarks that Aviva Premiership clubs have it harder than Rabo Direct Pro12 teams.

This week, McCafferty suggested that a flawed European qualification system is the reason for the poor showing by English clubs in the Heineken Cup.

The lads also discuss the Irish provinces performances in the recent Heineken Cup games.

Coming up on the show:

  1. Connacht finally get the win!
  2. Leinster ease past Montpellier
  3. Ulster look good despite losing to Clermont
  4. Munster’s 51 point record and super Zebo
  5. Heineken Cup ¼ final predictions
  6. What’s wrong with English Rugby?
  7. Irish Wolfhounds clash with the Saxons
