What a sensational weekend of rugby! On this week's show, the lads discuss a glorious three days of entertainment. We discuss those Jamie Heaslip comments and who really is the best number 8 in Ireland. We also reflect on that Tadhg Beirne incident. Maurice also goes on an almighty rant about some of the reaction to Toulouse's red card!

We caught up with former Connacht fan favourite Jake Heenan on life in Bristol, working with Pat Lam and John Muldoon and why coaching isn't for him.

Finally, the lads discuss the New Zealand player exodus and ask who could be the next Ireland backs coach?
