3.43a : “Opposition view : Munster” featuring @CorkSeashell
In the first of this week's two pods I spoke to Michelle Tobin about Leinster v Munster at the Aviva although we set out to mostly talk about how the fans and the media tend to look at the fixture. Subscribe to the feed where the second part should post Wednesday afternoon; we review Leinster v Toulouse and look ahead to matches against both Munster and of course La Rochelle.

This week we’re looking ahead to Ireland’s final match in the 2022 Six Nations coming up against Scotland on Saturday, and as we often do here at Harpin On Rugby we’re using the podcast to go looking for a view from opposition fans on how their team is looking.  And with the first leg of the 1872 Cup also taking place this weekend, I asked fans from both Edinburgh and Glasgow on to offer their thoughts.

On our last pod I got views from fans of Leinster, Munster & Connacht on Ireland’s Six Nations campaign so to complete the set this week I spoke to Ulsterman Ian Frizzell who looked at our chances for the big match at Twickenham on Saturday.  And while I had him on I guess it would have been rude not to also get his thoughts on a certain rearranged top of the table URC clash at the Kingspan later that same evening.

Also as a bonus I had a panel of Leinster fans to give their thoughts on the victory over Bath from last weekend.
