Brian Moore's Full Contact Rugby
James Simpson-Daniel: Ben Morgan ticks the boxes for England's number eight shortage
Monday, 15 October
The European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup are back for another season and what an opening weekend it was. In the studio this week Brian Moore is joined by former England and Gloucester winger James Simpson-Daniel.
Brian and James dissect the weekend's European Rugby action including a day to forget for Bath and Freddie Burns. Former Leinster hooker Shane Byrne joins the show to discuss whether his old side are going to make it two Champions Cup titles in a row, and Worcester head coach Rory Duncan reflects on a memorable win for the Warriors against Stade Francais in Paris.
They analyse who is best suited to replace the injured Billy Vunipola in Eddie Jones' upcoming England squad and preview another big weekend in Europe.
