The Craggy Rugby podcast attempts to turn the table on the traditional format for rugby coverage in Ireland. We start with Connacht Rugby and work from there rather than the other way around. During the Rugby season we release a preview and review episode for each and every Connacht game in the URC and European Champions Cup. We also have a mini-pod after the team selection announcement, for each match. Not to mention the Connacht specific stats that we tweet during and after each match. We' ...

Ireland seem to be making something of a habit of beating the All Blacks these days. With 12 Leinstermen in the starting team during the weekend's landmark win at the Aviva Stadium, Jonathan Bradley is joined by Michael Sadlier and John Dickson to wonder whether the national team are as well just fielding their top provincial side.There's also a lo…
 
Connacht really did feel the full force of the backlash from Leinster after suffering another comprehensive defeat by the standard bearers in the URC. It looked so promising for the first 30 minutes or so, but Leinster had just too much firepower. William Davies, Dave Finn and Alan Deegan were on hand to run the rule over another disappointing trip…

Ulster's perfect start to the season is over in remarkable fashion.The 36-11 collapse against Connacht at the Aviva Stadium has led to something of a investigation demanded by the bagful of listener questions sent in this week.

Wow, what a win and what an atmosphere at the home of Irish rugby for the cinderella province as they produced a wonderful performance to totally eclipse the previously unbeaten Ulster side.

The Ulster Rugby Round Up is back by popular demand after an unexpected week's break.Joining Gareth Hanna to discuss another, according to some, dissatisfying bonus point victory are Jonathan Bradley and Michael Sadlier.

It was an epic URC game in Thomond Park with Munster managing to sneak past Connacht with a late, late try after the visitors had forced themselves in front with a few minutes to go. Connacht's consistent inconsistency continues with another massive performance in Thomond Park, that's 3 one score games in a row between the sides. The ball didn't bo…
 
The only consistent thing about Connacht is their inconsistency. They had enough territory and possession in the first half to have put the game beyond the Dragons, but were given a lesson in game management in the the second half as the visitors deservedly won their first match in the Sportsground since 2004. We hear the post match thoughts of And…
 
Two matches down and Ulster's 100 per cent record continues thanks to a bonus point win at Zebre.Joining Gareth Hanna to discuss just how 'disjointed' the performance really was are rugby reporters Jonathan Bradley and Richard Mulligan.

The new season is finally upon us as Glasgow arrive at the Kingspan Stadium.But the pre-amble to the United Rugby Championship's opening game has been far overshadowed by the arrival of Springbok star Duane Vermeulen to Ulster Rugby.

Benetton kept their hopes reaching the Rainbow Cup final firmly on course when a dogged win over the maddeningly inconsistent Connacht team in Treviso. The visitors lost the man earning his 200th cap, Denis Buckley, after only 32 seconds which had a massive impact on the game as the majority of the 15 penalties that Benetton won in the match came a…
 
Denis Buckley will become only the 3rd player to play 200 times for Connacht when he takes the field against Benetton in the Rainbow Cup in a game that sees the Italian side looking to keep their unbeaten record as they top the Rainbow Cup table. William Davies was asking the questions at the press conference where Denis was joined by Connacht defe…
 
It's three down, two to go for Ulster in the enduring slog that the Rainbow Cup has become but there are plenty of interesting topics remaining on the agenda.Top of the bill, of course, was that contentious decision not to sanction Robbie Henshaw for his tackle on Robert Baloucoune. We also look at the wider performance in that defeat to Leinster, …
