The42 Rugby Show: Murray Kinsella and Ian Dowling on facing the haka and Ireland's defence

The former Munster and Ireland wing looks ahead to a busy weekend of rugby.


TONIGHT, MUNSTER TAKE on a Maori All Blacks side at Thomond Park, less than a week after Ireland’s historic first-ever win over New Zealand in Chicago.

Joe Schmidt’s side gears up for a mouth-watering second Test with his homeland next week with a clash against Canada in Dublin tomorrow.

Murray Kinsella was joined by former Munster and Ireland wing Ian Dowling to discuss what it’s like to face the haka — like he did famously in Munster’s near loss in ’08 — as well as the province’s recent resurgence, Ireland’s defensive set-up and what we can learn tomorrow ahead of next weekend.
