Ireland's Six Nations campaign, of course, got off to a losing start on Sunday and we're here to look at the 21-16 defeat in Wales.

Finding himself in the crosshair of much of the post-match debate was Billy Burns, whose last gasp error gave up the final chance to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. It has helped to spark further discussion over the problem of an aging Johnny Sexton and who should be the successor to the throne.

Joining host Gareth Hanna to discuss that, Iain Henderson, the game against France are more are rugby reporting duo Jonathan Bradley and Michael Sadlier. You can listen to this week's podcast here:
