Leinster were just short of achieving a historic double, as Ospreys fired in all cylinders to beat the European Champions in the RaboDirect Pro12 Final. Conor O'Shea's Harlequins defied the odds to beat Leicester at Twickenham in the Premiership Final while Toulon and Castres progressed to the Top14 semi finals with forgettable wins.
Joining Dave this week is a revigorated Alan who finally sorted his sound problems in Luxembourg, Pedro from Cork, Doc from Dublin and later in the show Ulsterman William chimes in.
COMING UP ON THE SHOW:
0:00 - We look back on the RaboDirect Pro12 final where Ospreys beat Leinster in Dublin. The scrum once again played a part in a big game and we discuss if it's possible to win 2 finals in consecutive weeks without significant rotation. Also Shane Williams retired in style!
16:35 - Harlequins have won their first Premiership title in their first Premiership final over a more experienced Leicester Tigers side.
26:05 - The Top14's "match de barrages" bored Alan to death, but it's all about the result at this stage as Toulon and Castres went through to the semi-finals to face Clermont and Toulouse respectively.
30:15 - There's been plenty of news down in Munster, with colourful kiwi Simon Mannix arriving as Munster's new backs coach. We also mention quotes from Rob Penney in the press.
44:10 - The panel discuss Ireland's confirmed squad for the tour to New Zealand, having narrowly lost to the Barbarians.
1:02:10 - Some quickfire questions from our fans on boards.ie!
1:11:10 - Bet of the Week!
