Munster’s campaign opened with a narrow defeat to Toulouse at a frozen and foggy Thomond Park last Sunday.

On this week’s episode of The Left Wing, Will Slattery and Luke Fitzgerald be joined by Jonathan Bradley to discuss the opening round of the Champions Cup.
Ulster are the first team on the agenda after their embarrassing 39-0 defeat to Sale – Jonathan says it is the worst Ulster performance he has seen in eight years covering the team.
