On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined in studio by Leinster and Ireland flanker Dan Leavy to discuss his season to date.

Leavy won Man of the Match against Saracens last Sunday and he discusses his brilliant performance - as well as his excellent inter-play with James Ryan that led to a try. Leavey also reveals that he didn't always think he would make it as a rugby player when in school.

The Leinster star also talks about Ireland's recent Grand Slam win as well as his relationship with fellow young gun Ryan.

Luke and Will also talk about Easter eggs, Luke's appearance on a rival podcast and Munster's epic win over Toulon.

The lads agree that Andrew Conway is hitting his peak after his sensational match-winning try.
