The Left Wing: Leinster's succession plan, Munster's missing piece and the art of contract negotiations
On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald look ahead to the PRO 14 final and discuss last weekend's semi-final.
The lads start off by discussing Glasgow's comprehensive win over Ulster, and Luke asks why Ulster haven't been able to get over the line and win a trophy in the last ten years.
Leinster vs Munster turned out to be one-sided on the scoreboard and Luke thinks Munster are missing one play-maker in the backline to really take the next step. For Leinster, Ross Byrne got the nod to start against Munster and Luke thinks this is a sign that Leinster have a succession plan in place to take over from Johnny Sexton.
And with Rob Kearney currently negotiating a new contract with the IRFU, Luke Fitzgerald explains how difficult it can be when you are facing an uncertain future in professional rugby.
