The Back Page, Episode #62: Spygate, Premier League, Champions Cup and more

Episode 62,   Jan 17, 2019, 04:21 PM

This week on The Back Page, host Shane Stapleton is joined by two-time All-Ireland winner and Irish Mirror columnist Bernard Flynn, Declan Marron from Ladbrokes and The Irish Mirror's Robert Hynes. 

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has dominated headlines over 'Spygate' in the past week and the whole affair is first up for discussion. 

The lads also take a look ahead to a busy weekend of Premier League matches, with Arsenal's Saturday evening clash with Chelsea the standout fixture, while Leinster, Munster and Ulster are all in Champions Cup action following Joe Schmidt's Six Nations team announcement. 

Also up for discussion is the NFL, all the GAA action and the Dublin Racing Festival, which takes place in just over two weeks time. 

This weekend's racing cards are also looked at as a very short-priced Altior looks to extend his dominant run.
