The Left Wing: Another Irish clean sweep in Europe and Dublin star Cian O'Sullivan on his proudest moment in football

On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Dublin star Cian O'Sullivan to discuss his All-Ireland-winning inter-county career and how he balances work with top level sport.

Luke and Cian are friends from their time in school, and discuss the challenges they faced in working their way to the top of rugby and Gaelic football. Cian reveals that battling back from a serious injury to play in the 2015 All-Ireland final was his proudest moment in a Dublin jersey, and he sheds some light on how Dublin are able to snatch victory from the jaws of the defeat so often.

Luke and Will also discuss the weekend's Champions Cup action, whether Ross Byrne is a viable alternative to Johnny Sexton, Leicester's indiscipline, Kyle Sinckler's antics and Ian Keatley's resilience.
