Host Gareth Hanna is joined by roving rugby reporter Jonathan Bradley, who is still in Japan while the squad fly home after the disappointing 46-14 defeat to New Zealand.

He looks back on the game itself and its significance for Irish Rugby, which will now go forward without inspirational captain Rory Best and respected leader Joe Schmidt.

Back in provincial action, Ulster are taking on Cardiff Blues on Friday evening and Adam McKendry is on hand to look ahead to the PRO14 clash as well as mull over the news of Michael Lowry's injury.
