The Counter Ruck: How Leicester inspired Leinster’s drive to the top

Plus, John O'Sullivan breaks down Ireland women's Six Nations defeat to Italy

Listen | 48:11

Former Ireland, Leinster and Leicester backrow Shane Jennings joins Gordon D’Arcy and host Nathan Johns. The historical links between Leinster and Leicester, opponents this weekend in the Champions Cup, are profound. In 2005, Jennings and current Leinster head coach Leo Cullen left the province for a two-year stint at the English club. When they returned, they played a significant role in a culture shift that saw the province transition from perennial underachievers to European champions.

Also on this episode of The Counter Ruck, John O’Sullivan breaks down Ireland women’s defeat to Italy in the Six Nations.
