Episode 64 - Mike Phillips - Gatland's Lost His Bark - Ireland Dominate & Boring England

As the Six Nations continues to throw up an incredible plethora of engaging and entertaining matches, we're joined by Lions & Wales legend Mike Phillips to discuss the highs, lows and controversies from round 2. After the lads analyse the big talking points from the huge clash in Dublin between Ireland & France - including; the Wayne Barnes controversy, the James Lowe try that never was and how Ireland managed to bring a holt to France's 14 games unbeaten run - the lads turn their attention to Scotland vs Wales. Mike explains how; he's never seen it so bad for Welsh rugby, how he was surprised Gatland got offered the job and how he looks out of his depth and he's lost his bark, how he never did much of the coaching anyway and relied on his staff around him (namely Shaun Edwards and Rob Howley), how it's time to clear out all the old generation, and how Wales realistically are battling to not finish last this Championship. Ryan (as ever) is happy to gloat about the genius of Scotland and in particular last weeks guest in Finn Russell. Finally the lads discuss the England vs Italy game and debate whether; England have gone back to an old fashioned boring game plan of kicking and driving, how impressive Ollie Lawrence and Jack Willis were on their returns, why Italy were hard done by and finish off by previewing what they think will be the outcome in the table now that we're two weeks in. So sit back, plug in and enjoy!
