Sh!t it in ,

Love the nod to Matthew Perry - but not the dogs at Michael Hooper

A fantastic pod, but sadly Doran has been gunning for M Hooper to be dropped for as long as I’ve been listening

I can’t help but feel he would’ve added gravitas, courage & clarity in RWC2023 & no other nation seems to have treated key players so poorly

Waiting for a recant & apology by Mr Doran!

Good insight, authentic hosts but let’s get the ladies on a bit more often now please - Wallaroos are winning more games in 2023….

PS hooper for wallabies coach (you heard it here first )!!!

Witsy ,

Great rugby pod

Insightful and balanced views. Listen every week!
