Shane Williams and Tadhg Furlong on The Hard Yards

A brilliant show for a big week of rugby...

There is a very busy week of rugby ahead of us with a full round of Six Nations fixtures and PRO14 taking place.


Host Andy McGeady and SportsJOE reporter Pat McCarry are joined in studio by former Wales and Lions winger Shane Williams. Pat was also on his bike this week to chat to Tadhg Furlong about growing up down in Wexford, helping his father out at the butchers and Cian Healy's night time rituals.
