The Left Wing: Rhys Ruddock on dealing with injury and why he chose to play in Ireland
On this week's podcast, Luke Fitzgerald and Will Slattery are joined by Leinster and Ireland star Rhys Ruddock.
The flanker is currently recovering from a nasty hamstring injury and he tells the lads how his rehab is going - as well as giving Irish fans some positive news on his return.
Ruddock's dad Mike is a Grand Slam-winning coach with Wales, and Rhys talks about the influence his father has had on his rugby career, as well as explaining how he came to the decision of playing his rugby in Ireland.
Also, Will and Luke discuss the recent debate surrounding Munster second row Gerbrandt Grobler as well as going over the weekend's Champions Cup action.
