The European cup is back in action this week and in Spain there is a royal cup on the go.

Two Irish ladies are officiating in men's matches. Helen O'Reilly is an assistant referee in a Challenge Cup match and Joy Neville is referee a B&I Cup match.

This week Kenya join us as they get going again after the deaths of two players brought a halt to their rugby - both, it seems, with heart problems.
