Podcast ep 8 : "Harpy 11th birthday (featuring Ciarán Duffy)"

This is the 5000th post on HarpinOnRugby.net, and it falls on the site's 11th birthday.   Wouldn't it be amazing if I could honestly say I planned it that way???? 🤔😜


On this week's pod we talk to our most prolific Harpin contributor about both Leinster and Ireland’s chances over the coming months plus the possibility of expanding the amount of teams at the Rugby World Cup.  Then I do some 80-word reviews on last weekend’s test matches and a controversial try from one of them provides me with my topic for this week’s Harpin Point.

BACK & FORWARD CHAT with Ciarán Duffy

Ciarán is the Producer and Presenter of Post to Post Sport (@PostToPostSport), a sports podcast that covers rugby, football, wrestling, and Irish Sport News. You can get their podcasts on MixCloud our Spotify (Search PostToPostSport) and PlayerFM (Post to Post Sport).



We chat about Leinster & Ireland's chances for the coming season as well as the need for more matches for lower tier teams, especially at the World Cup.

To round things off, Ciarán has a go at our new game called Association Rugby, where I fire 10 rugby terms at him in quick succession to see what he says in return.  Here's what I gave him...
