Eddie O'Sullivan and Fiona Hayes join Neil Treacy on this week's RTÉ Rugby podcast to look back on Ireland's 40-5 TikTok Women's Six Nations defeat to France, with a "must-win" game against Italy to come on Sunday.
The panel also discuss the sad news of Dan Leavy's injury-enforced retirement, and whether or not enough is being done to make the ruck safer.
There's also a preview of this weekend's Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 first leg ties, with all four Irish provinces involved in the knockout stage for the very first time.
