Brian Moore's Full Contact Rugby
Brian Moore: This is the trickiest 6 Nations to call
Monday, 21 January
This week saw the culmination of the group stages in Europe leaving three Irish, two French, two Scottish, and one English team left to fight it out for the Champions Cup. Here to discuss that and the upcoming 6 Nations tournament with Brian Moore is the former England, Saracens, and Leicester hooker, George Chuter.
Brian and George debate the big question following the weekend's results, are the English clubs as interested in Europe in the same way as the French and Celtic clubs? Before delving into why Exeter should have taken kicks at goal instead of going for tries against Munster, and what George thinks of Leicester's current state of affairs.
For an Irish perspective on the Champions Cup we speak with former Ireland, Leinster, and Munster centre James Downey on how you beat Leinster, whether Munster can defeat Edinburgh at Murrayfield, and why he thinks Ireland will win the Grand Slam again this year.
With Eddie Jones announcing his initial 6 Nations squad last week, we discuss whether it is the best possible squad and who could replace Owen Farrell at fly-half and as leader if needed.
Plus Nathan Middleton brings us up to date with the Premier 15s and previews the Red Roses' 6 Nations.
