On this Tuesday's URN Sport Adam was joined by panelists Danny, Jack and Ben. They began with a chat about Andy Murray's losing start in the ATP World Tour Finals.
In rugby union, England were beaten 24-21 at Twickenham by New Zealand at the weekend. The boys discussed how the All Blacks' dominance was not reflected in the final scoreline. The defeat leaves England on a four-match losing run.
