On the latest episode of The Left Wing podcast, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Jonathan Bradley to look back on the URC quarter-finals.

They kick things off with a post-mortem on Ulster's season after their disappointing home defeat to Connacht. Where do Ulster go from here and is head coach Dan McFarland the right man to lead them forward?

Luke and Jonathan then pay tribute to Connacht's great win and the job Andy Friend has done as the head coach before his departure at the end of the current campaign.

The lads finish things with a look ahead to Leinster vs Munster in the URC semi-finals - what team will Leo Cullen pick and can Graham Rowntree's men spring an upset?
