On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald and joined in studio by Leinster and Ireland scrum-half Luke McGrath to discuss his career to date.

McGrath made his Leinster debut as a 19-year-old back in 2012, and is now one of the senior players. The former St Michael's College pupil opens up on his rise through the ranks, having captained his home province from an early age.

McGrath is currently sidelined with a knee injury but is hoping to be back in early March for his province. McGrath talks about the intricacies of playing scrum-half and what he has learned from playing alongside Johnny Sexton for club and country.

Luke Fitzgerald also discusses his comments on Jacob Stockdale on last weekend's podcast and gives an assessment of Ireland's performance against Scotland.
