RTÉ Rugby World Cup podcast: Where will Ireland v South Africa be won and lost?
Neil Treacy is joined by BJ Botha and Mick Kearney on the RTÉ Rugby World Cup podcast, for a full preview of Ireland's crucial Pool B meeting with defending champions South Africa in Paris on Saturday.
The panel look back on Ireland's win against Tonga, where their lineout looked much improved after some inconsistencies this summer (10:00).
We also look at the role Bundee Aki is likely to play after he continued his great form with another two tries on Saturday (19:32), we examine what has been a formidable Springboks defence (23:23) in recent months, and look over some of the big selection calls Andy Farrell is faced with this week (35:38).
BJ and Mick also look back on the result of the weekend (44:08), as Fiji blew Pool C wide open with a 22-15 win against Australia, their first victory over the Wallabies in 69 years.
