The Buildup is our new weekly podcast, with Ladbrokes, where we preview all the major sporting action for the weekend ahead. We'll be building the hype, whetting the appetite and making some bold predictions for everything that's happening.

Regular rugby correspondent, Ireland and Ulster legend Stephen Ferris looks ahead to Ireland's visit to Twickenham this weekend, and talks about the value of World Cup warm-up games and how Irish players on the cusp of the squad need to seriously up the intensity in this game.
After some serious success in our week 1 picks, we kept pace last week, thanks mainly to some shrewd golf selections in the BMW Championship. We try to replicate that with the Tour Championship this week, definitely not the most confusing competition in sport!
Mick, Mark and Sean also make their Ladbrokes 1-2-FREE picks for this week (20.03), and the lads try to see if they can give Arsenal any chance at Anfield on Saturday, as well as looking at the entire football weekend.
We "Get Hyped" for the All-Ireland Ladies' Football semi-finals , while Sean makes his "Big Shout" debut with a tantalising football double.
If you have a Big Shout, send it to us, and you can win the grand prize of two cakes and a sports autobiography!
