The 2017/18 Podcast Season

We're rolling nicely over at The Hard Yards. Here's what I've been up to on the pod so far this season.

Podcast: It’s the #ROGpod

Ronan O'Gara makes his debut on the pod: "Sharing" his washbag with Donncha O'Callaghan for a decade, a look ahead to Ireland vs England, and how the Stade/Racing merger announcement impacted the market for rugby players in Europe.

Podcast: Swimming with Sharks

And petting puppies. And Lions. And Horses. This is the list of things that Kevin McLaughlin, Donncha O'Callaghan and I talk about in order to get away from Ireland's defeat in Wales.

Podcast: I was the dickhead who conceded the penalty, your Highness.

Paddy Wallace and Ireland's Grand Slam game in 2009. Irish Legends, England Legends. And Jerry Flannery and Victor Costello.

Podcast: TopTenBestFriendsEver

Mike McCarthy and Johnny O'Connor talk friendship, penguins. Rugby gets a mention. There are loud noises.

BBQ, melted cheese and the tight head squeeze.

It's episode three of The Hard Yards, featuring Mike Ross, Chris Farrell and Donncha O'Callaghan
