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.
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.
