Will is back from annual leave, and he was thrown straight into the action as Caley Thistle backed up their Highland derby win in the Scottish Cup with an even more impressive performance away at Morton. The guys discuss the confidence Inverness clearly have going forward right now, and there's even an early shout for player of the year.

On the flip side, it was a painful derby for Ross County, and they will need to pick themselves up quickly ahead of a massive trip to Kilmarnock in their first post-split match.

There's also news from the North Caledonian League, who have announced when they will be returning to action to finish off the 2020/21 season - and the prospect of a tier six in the Scottish football pyramid appears to be becoming a reality.

Elsewhere, discus thrower Kirsty Law passed the qualifying standard for next year's Commonwealth Games by setting a new personal best, the Camanachd Cup draw was made for shinty clubs, and despite snow hitting the Highlands this week there's even some surfing talk.
