On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Leinster wing Fergus McFadden to discuss the province's season so far, Ireland's demolition of the Springboks and their rivalry as team-mates.

Fitzgerald and McFadden discuss the performances of Jacob Stockdale and Andrew Conway against South Africa, while McFadden talks about the competition for places in the Leinster back three.

The duo had a healthy rivalry during their time with Leinster and Ireland, and the good friends reveal that they were able to help each other on the pitch despite competing for places.
