ONE MORE WEEK of level 5 done and dusted and there was even a hint, however brief, of spring in the air.
It would do you good. It’s nice to have something to look forward to, and here at The42 we’ve got another great week of membership content lined up to keep you entertained and, hopefully, informed.
All of our stories are available for free through our platforms, but joining The42’s membership scheme – you can sign up for a €5 a month, or a discounted €42 a year – opens the door to another world of exclusive podcasts, newsletters, prizes and insights along with supporting our free and independent journalism.
Your continued support of our work is, as always, greatly appreciated, and we hope you enjoy what we’ve got lined up across another busy week in the sporting world.
This evening you can jump straight into some instant reaction to Ireland’s Six Nations win over Scotland with Murray Kinsella and Garry Doyle on the Rugby Weekly Extra post-match pod.
Tomorrow, you can wrap your ears around the usual Monday Rugby Weekly Extra pod as regular analyst Eoin Toolan joins Murray to get nerdy about all of the action from Week 4 of the Six Nations.
Members also get access to our members’ WhatsApp group, which is populated by engaged and informed rugby fans from all over the country. Entry, which is part of the membership package, allows members to help shape the show.
On Tuesday, we have a Behind The Lines special live event with Wright Thompson joining Gavin Cooney and The42 members to discuss his career, his favourite sportswriting, his advice and much more.
On Saturday we’ll have another post-match episode of Rugby Weekly Extra, with immediate reaction to Ireland’s Six Nations meeting with England.
Our latest Bylines Essay is also published this week, and comes courtesy of IFTA-winning director [Heartbreak, 2017], and director of Dublin Oldschool, Dave Tynan.
