Irish fans now dreaming of back-to-back Grand Slams

Listen | 47:10

Fresh off covering Ireland’s win over France, Gerry Thornley joins host Nathan Johns and John O’Sullivan to review the victory that sets up Andy Farrell’s team as favourites for the Six Nations.

We discuss the French media’s strong reaction, how Ireland looked a better-coached side, the impressive second row pairing of Joe McCarthy and Tadhg Beirne as well as Jack Crowley’s coming-of-age performance at out-half. We also analyse if Ireland has a scrum problem, while looking at the U20s win over France in Aix-en-Provence.

Produced by Declan Conlon and John Casey. JJ Vernon on sound.
