On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Dragons head coach Bernard Jackman.

Jackman fills the lads in on how his project in Wales is coming along, as he looks to lay the foundations for lasting success at the Dragons. They also discuss his time in charge of Grenoble in the Top 14, from how the language barrier prevents French players from getting access to top coaches from around the world to the problems that occurred when he tried to impose restrictions on desserts!

Ireland vs Wales is also on the agenda. Joe Schmidt has only beaten Wales once in four attempts in the Six Nations - why have Ireland struggled against Warren Gatland's men?

There's also talk of Pancake Tuesday, and Will gets Luke's thoughts on a new Left Wing competition he wants to run.
