Jake Heenan, Did Tadhg Beirne Dive, Who Is Ireland's Best Number 8?

What a sensational weekend of rugby! On this week's World in Union podcast, a weekly rugby show getting the outside perspective on the game, the lads reflect on a glorious three days of entertainment.

We discuss those Jamie Heaslip comments and who really is the best number 8 in Ireland. We then reflect on that Tadhg Beirne incident. Was it a dive? There is also an almighty rant about some of the reaction to Toulouse's red card!

We also caught up with former Connacht fan favourite Jake Heenan on life in Bristol, working with Pat Lam and John Muldoon and why coaching isn't for him. Heenan gives a remarkable insight into how he changed his game to avoid injury.

Finally, the lads discuss the New Zealand player exodus and ask who could be the next Ireland backs coach?
