Neil Treacy is joined on this week's RTÉ Rugby podcast by Ireland and Leinster prop, and Tackle Your Feelings ambassador Andrew Porter ahead of a big 12 months for both province and country (from 36:30).

We also look ahead to the upcoming Women's Interprovincial Series with Munster assistant Fiona Hayes, as well as look back on the big talking points of the last week in rugby, with Johnny Sexton looking like being an injury doubt for the start of the Six Nations, and Munster set to lose Ben Healy to Edinburgh (recorded before his move was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon)

Listen to the RTÉ Rugby podcast on Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.

Watch live coverage of Connacht v Sharks (Saturday, 5.15pm) on RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player.
