Will and Andrew are back looking at a bumper week of sport in the Highlands!

It started off with the sad news that Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Robertson would be temporarily stepping away from the club on compassionate grounds, with former Rangers, Hearts and Dundee player Neil McCann coming in as interim boss.

Ross County also defeated Celtic, with the guys discussing who stood out in that match, as well as talking about ICT's results against Ayr United last weekend and Alloa Athletic on Tuesday and previewing the weekend's matches.

Teenage rugby sensation Jamie Dobie was named in the senior Scotland squad for the first time ahead of their Six Nations fixture against France – only to see the match postponed due to positive Covid-19 cases in the French camp, while there is also an update on a Athletics Inverness' first virtual events, Nairn County's thoughts on a potential switch to summer football and more!
