On a bumper episode, Mikey Stafford and Rory O'Neill are joined by Oisín McConville, Cora Staunton, Derek McGrath and former inter-county referee Barry Kelly.

In football, Oisín and Cora weigh-in on Stephen Cluxton’s 'stepping away’, with Cora questioning if the lack of clarity around his status is helping to ease pressure on the seven-in-a-row chasing Dubs.

They look ahead to the weekend’s games, eyeing Limerick as the best chance of a shock against Cork, with Cavan and Derry also given a slim chance against Tyrone and Derry respectively.

With the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Ladies Football Championship beginning this weekend, Cora throws her eyes over the list of contenders, which numbers one in her eyes – not even Cork have the squad to challenge Mick Bohan’s Dublin, who are looking for a fifth straight title.

In hurling, Derek and Barry reflect on Kildare’s amazing Under-20 win over Kildare and look ahead to the crucial preliminary qualifier between Laois and Antrim, which will see the loser drop out of the Leinster Hurling Championship.

They then reflect on the sin-binning in the Gaelic Grounds, with both Derek and Barry agreeing the new rule needs tweaking as there are too many moving parts and it asks too much of referees.
