This week, Malcolm looks forward to the Wales game and criticises Ireland’s unnecessarily high penalty count and the malfunctioning lineout.
Three games down, two to go; it’s time for a mid-term report on Ireland’s Six Nations campaign so far.
JOE wonders if Kevin McLaughlin is a viable lineout option for Ireland, whether Ruan Pienaar can shine at out-half and if Munster’s demise has been greatly exaggerated.
Rob, Johnny and Malcolm dissect Ireland’s patchy victory over Scotland, why we are giving away so many penalties and Malcolm’s ongoing battle with the Residents’ Association.
Dropping Jonathan Sexton seems like a backward step, but Ireland should still have enough to prevail against Scotland, writes Conor Ward.
After a lengthy absence, Malcolm O’Kelly and Johnny O’Connor are reunited and join Rob to talk about the Six Nations so far, Ireland v Scotland and fancy dress outfits.
Malcolm reflects on what has been a mixed Six Nations campaign so far, how important the lineout has become and picks what he thinks should be the Irish starting XV against Scotland.
There is very little wrong with how Ireland are trying to play rugby, but there should still be changes made ahead of the Scotland match, writes Conor Ward.
