The Six Nations is back this weekend with Ireland in Rome. Maurice is advocating an experimental lineup for the game on Sunday with an eye to the World Cup, though we're not sure Joe will agree.

We catch up with former Munster No. 8 Paddy Butler who's making his way in the mini Irish revolution at Pau, tearing it up in Top 14 rugby. He talks to us about the opportunities for Irish players abroad and about the current state of French international rugby.

We also discuss the impressive form of Connacht and Ma'a Nonu's return to Super Rugby.
