Round three of the Champions Cup has been and now we're beginning to get a good look at who will be making the knockout stages. Joining Brian Moore to discuss this week's news and action is former England and Quins number 8, Nick Easter.
This week they discuss whose responsibility it is to get teams going: the players or the coaches; they discuss the rumours surrounding Wasps; and the biggest topic of the weekend: flag-gate.
For an Irish perspective former Leinster, Munster, and Connacht centre, James Downey gives us his thoughts on Leinster saying they aren't the complete package yet, on Ulster's Will Addison, and his opinion on Andy Farrell taking over from Joe Schmidt.
Nick and Brian debate the upcoming 6 Nations and who is expected to do well with Nick saying it won't be a "Grand Slam" year.
Top rugby referee Nigel Owens returns to the podcast to explain the law surrounding the grounding of the ball, and what it is like to referee at Racing 92's state of the art stadium.
