The last dance
Seanie and Alex go through Warren Gatland’s team selection for the third and final Test and pick out where the game will be won and lost. The boys are also joined by top referee JP Doyle to give his perspective on the criticism the officials have had to deal with during the series and he gives us an insight into how a referee prepares for a big game.
The Boks bounce back
Springbok World Cup winner Bobby Skinstad joins Seánie and Goodie to reflect on South Africa's 27-9 win over the Lions to level the series. They examine what the difference was between the two sides on Saturday and why the Lions are expected to make wholesale changes ahead of the decider. The boys also pick their fantasy sevens side from both teams.
Mako, Jaco and a wounded Bok
After Warren Gatland named his starting Lions XV for the second Test, Seanie and Goodie pick through the bones of his selection. The boys are joined by Schalk Brits to get the South African perspective and Mako Vunipola joins the pod to chat life on tour.
First blood to the Lions
Seánie and Goodie are joined by former Scotland captain Geig Laidlaw to review the first Test that saw the Lions out-muscle the Boks to win 22-17. The boys pick out who impressed them most, where it went wrong for South Africa and what we can expect next weekend.
Gatland’s gamble and Rassie the waterboy
Seánie is joined by Shane Horgan to take a forensic look at Warren Gatland’s Lions team to face the Springboks in that first Test on Saturday. And Schalk Brits joins the boys from South Africa to give his view on Jacques Nienaber side.
The return of Lazarus
Goodie and Seánie are joined by former Scotland skipper Greig Laidlaw to reflect on a busy week for the Lions, the return of Alun Wyn Jones, and look ahead to the first test against the Springboks. Greig also talks about his memories of the 2017 tour, while they also discuss life in Japan.
What a wonderfully vulnerable interview with Will Carling, huge respect for the journey he’s been through.
Rugby League to Haskell
As a rugby league fan/player, wasn’t sure how much I’d enjoy this podcast but always been a Haskell & Chloe (for obvious reasons) fan.
Found the honesty refreshing & the dynamics hilarious!
5 stars form me.
Absolutely class podcast, super excited for what’s to come. “And on that bombshell” - Jeremy Clarkson
