The Up & Under Podcast – Episode 7 Featuring Tadhg Beirne, Jamie Heaslip, Stuart Lancaster & Johann van Graan

And it’s live.

Episode 7 of the Up and Under podcast is now live and we’ve got another packed show for your listening pleasure this week.

Once again I’m joined by former Ireland, Leinster and Lions number eight Jamie Heaslip to look back on the weekend’s action, preview what’s ahead and discuss everything in between when it comes to rugby across the world.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

We look at Racing’s stunning win over holder Saracens in the Champions Cup thanks to the magic of Finn Russell in the final minutes and look at the real reason Donnacha Ryan left Ireland and the incredible impact he’s had on the Parisian side.

Exeter were the victors in the other semi-final with Jamie looking at how in many ways they are an “evolved version” of Saracens and why he’s backing them to go all the way in just over two weeks’ time.

We also discuss Monday Night Rugby in the PRO14 and why it’s a complete no-brainer, the big four South African franchises joining the competition and how that could have an interesting knock-on effect when it comes to Irish Rugby.

And finally, we chat to Stuart Lancaster about the Ireland vs England power game debate, Johann van Graan on Munster’s ambitions this season and Tadhg Beirne on what Munster need to do to improve on this season.

Plus much, much more.
