Join Mick, Mark and PJ as they look back on Ireland's first Triple Crown win in 19 year when Eddie O'Sullivan's men played some of the most scintillating rugby in Irish history to overcome Matt Williams' Scotland. It's all hair styles, sexy jerseys, and post match interviews as we look back on what felt like the beginning of a rugby golden era.


As well as that, Arsenal were on their way to an invincible season when they hosted Manchester United at Highbury with Thierry Henry at his very best, In the Champions League though, nothing at all went to plan as the craziest of seasons peaked at the Quarter Final stage. These ties were crazy long before the recent trend of crazy Champions League ties.


We also look back on Padraig Harrington almost breaking America at the Players' Championship at Sawgrass.
