For this episode things are going to be a little bit different. On Thursday, May 28 at 8:30pm I’ll be joining up with Big Joe Shep from the excellent Facebook Live offering Three Blokes A Ball & BOD for a new show called The Leinster Laighin where we’ll be looking to merge the Leinster-focused approach of HarpinOnRugby with Big Joe’s trademark global reach brand. So for this pod I’m going to share some snippets from Joe’s productions in recent times - first he’s chatting to Gerard Williamson from Navan RFC about the All Ireland League and club rugby in general - Gerard will actually be joining us on our first show to talk about his club. There there’s snippets from a couple of live events that I did for Joe; first you’ll hear a way over the top introduction he gave for me at the Sandymount Hotel ahead of the 2019 Heineken Cup Final, and then you’ll hear the moment I completely jinxed Ireland’s World Cup chances at the DTwo Bar & Night Club on Harcourt Street. Finally there’s a clip from another Three Blokes spinoff, namely The Keego & Joe Show, where they chat to Penny Mitsi, a rugby coach, trainer, sporting ambassador & who is part of the development of rugby within Greece.
