Lynne Cantwell, Donal Lenihan, Bernard Jackman and Wes Liddy join Hugh Cahill to discuss the latest rugby news.

Ireland's heavy defeat to France in the Women's Six Nations paves the way for a discussion on the structures at grass roots levels and how the issues can be addressed.

The panel also ask how the effective the new laws being trialled in the upcoming Rainbow Cup will be and react to the news that the South African sides will not be travelling to Europe to take part in the latter rounds.
