The Buildup, in association with Ladbrokes is our weekly look ahead to the weekend's sport, marking your card at the busiest time of the sporting year.
Our regular rugby analyst Stephen Ferris is back with us this week to reflect on Ireland's brilliant display against Scotland in the Rugby World Cup and look ahead to our test against the host Japan on Saturday. (7.28)

Former Republic of Ireland striker and our regular voice on football Kevin Doyle has some interesting takes on the situation at Manchester United and the cheek of Jose Mourinho blaming everyone else for it from his seat in the Sky Sports studio. He talks about the mood in a dressing room when a manager is on the verge of the sack and wonders if Everton players are feeling that way this week. He also gives us another Premier League treble, after coming oh so close last week. (30.21)
Mick and Mark also play Ladbrokes' 1-2-Free, for the chance to win €100 cash. (55.10)
"Get Hyped" for the FAI Cup semi-finals and the World Athletics Championships (62.37), while Mick's has some more NFL picks for Week 4, having gone 5-1 against the spread this season (74.18)
Mark's in charge of the Big Shout this week and he's gone for a cross sport six fold which should keep us interested all weekend. (68.24)
