WATCH: Former England fly-half raises a serious but valid concern about Johnny Sexton's Lions hopes
Not Goode news

Calling all rugby fans.

Former England fly half, Andy Goode, will be one of the guests on tonight's episode of TV3's new rugby chat show, The Clubhouse.

The Clubhouse is hosted by Joe Molloy and the weekly show features current players, former greats and guests from the world of entertainment. The show offers a great mix of rugby analysis and entertainment for hardcore supporters and casual fans alike.

Tonight's show will see the guests discuss everything from the Lions selection to the fact that Andy Goode appears to be the rugby equivalent of Benjamin Button!

Goode will also offer his opinion on the evolution of kicking routines in recent years. He compares the meticulous preparation of players like Johnny Wilkinson to the "give it a good old welly" approach that was commonplace in his day!

However rugby fans looking for reassurance on Johnny Sexton's hopes of being the Lions No 10 may be in for a rude awakening.

"I think Owen Farrell should be in the team somewhere and you could start him at 12 and play Sexton at 10. I think the big question now is, and I loved what Joe Schmidt said, when Johnny Sexton comes back now from injury, because of the way Paddy Jackson is playing, he isn't guaranteed his place in the Irish team straight away.

"It is a massive call when they play France in a couple of weeks."

The Clubhouse will kick off at 10.30pm tonight.

The Clubhouse has teamed up with the Heineken Rugby Club to provide a weekly on-air competition which will send lucky winners to the Champions Cup final in Edinburgh in May. The Heineken Rugby Club offers exclusive rugby content and your chance to win prizes, tickets and more at the Heineken Rugby Club website
