Kevin McLaughlin and James Downey on The Hard Yards

A great show lined up for you...


Leinster are the PRO14 Champions, rounding off an impressive year for the province which included European glory and the emergence of a number of young stars who will likely be household names in the near future.

On this week's The Hard Yards, we discuss Leinster's PRO14 Final triumph, the incredible depth of their squad over a long season and that time James stepped Kev into oblivion.

Host Andy McGeady is without his trusty partner of Pat McCarry this week, but he was joined by James Downey and Kevin McLaughlin in studio and we also had words from Jonathan Sexton and Garry Ringrose.
