Jamie Hagan, Leo Cullen's Celtic Comments, Peter O'Mahony - World In Union

And then there was one. For three Irish provinces, their season is at an end. For Leinster, silverware is still on offer with a Pro14 final to come this Saturday.

On this week's World in Union, PJ and Maurice reflect on Ulster's season and the progress made up north. Why were they so awful against Glasgow and what does it mean for their year as a whole?

The lads also analysis Leinster vs Munster and discuss the importance of a comprehensive skill-set. We hear from Johann Van Graan and Peter O'Mahony on a disappointing end to a mixed season.

There's also a discussion on the controversy surrounding Leo Cullen's Celtic support comments, a look at the signings of the season and a chat about what recent form means with a World Cup looming.

Finally, there is an immensely powerful interview with the brilliant Jamie Hagan. The former Leinster and Connacht man speaks candidly about his own career, the highs and the lows, mental health and wellbeing. It's a remarkably honest account and insight from a man still playing rugby at an elite level.

Jamie Hagan's story is an important one.
