May 31, 2018

On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Leinster legend Isa Nacewa to reflect on his remarkable career. After achieving a Champions Cup/PRO 14 double in his last season as a rugby player, Nacewa reveals his plans for the future as he prepares to return home to New Zealand. Fitzgerald discusses the qualities that made the Kiwi so indispensable to Leinster while Nacewa looks back on how Michael Cheika flew to New Zealand to convince him to move to the northern hemisphere. Luke and Isa look back on the Leinster vs Munster rivalry that was such a big part of their careers, and Nacewa explains the differences in playing Super Rugby and in the Champions Cup. Nacewa also gives his view on Ireland's chances at the World Cup, and says that Joe Schmidt's men should be targeting a win. neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
