UK League Chat (Ep. 25) – Munster Rugby Gaming & UKLC – ft. Mulgrew

Welcome to UK League Chat, a podcast focused on the UK League of Legends scene. Listen in to get the views of experts from the scene, from Esports journalists to the players themselves, on tournaments such as the NLC and UKLC.

This episode sees Lee and Tom joined by Munster Rugby Gaming’s Academy Manager Josh ‘Mulgrew’ Mulgrew, who has been with the side since the Phelan Gaming days.

Mulgrew gives some insight on the transition from Phelan to Munster and how this has changed the team-building process, particularly due to roster fluidity rules preventing the use of a 10 man roster.

Other topics included expectations for the split, hopes from the UKLC Academy side and, as always, predictions for the upcoming games this week.
