Alex Broun, James Downey and Vincent Gaillard on The Hard Yards

A bit of a different show for you this week...

Ireland take on Australia this weekend in the first of a three test series down under, the Champions Cup is now called the Heineken Champions Cup, the beauty of the Sevens game, and Joey Carbery to Munster is finally a done-deal.


You can listen to the comments about Ireland's squad from an Australian perspective from the 8.00 minute mark below.

Host Andy McGeady is joined in studio this week once again by SportsJOE reporter Pat McCarry and James Downey. But Australian journalist Alex Broun gives us the lowdown on Australia's chances in the series, and we also speak to EPCR Director-General Vincent Gaillard about Heineken once again sponsoring Europe's premier club rugby competition.
