On this week's episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald are joined by Cian Tracey and Ross Karl from Sky New Zealand to discuss an eventful week for the Ireland team.

Cian joins the show from Auckland after returning from Ireland's heavy defeat to the New Zealand Maori. Both Cian and Luke are disappointed that more youngsters didn't raise their hand for Test-match selection, while they are in agreement that the circumstances around Jeremy Loughman's HIA didn't look good for the sport.

The lads discuss Ireland's injury issues ahead of the first Test before Ross joined the show to give the view from New Zealand, where he says pressure is coming on the All Blacks to deliver a vintage performance.
