The Finn Russell of rugby pods

Like Finn, at times you’re absolutely brilliant, at times you seem a little off colour...and at times you literally don’t show up! I drive to work and get all excited to get my weekly fix of Scottish rugby chat, only to see that occasionally, for no apparent reason, you’re not turning up!
As a former Stew Mel lad myself, I enjoy the mostly knowledgeable insight into the Scottish game...even the occasional quiz.
I do think, however, that you should create a ‘fine jar’ to be used whenever someone says “yeh, no” or “no, yeh”... it gets me as frustrated as a Scotland player before a Gatland Lions squad announcement

Love this rugby pod

Excellent pod lads! Look forward to it each week down here in Australia, some brilliant banter and rugby chat. Genuinely the best rugby podcast out there (particularly for the Scotland fans)

I initially signed up for a dozen or so rugby broadcasts and am down the last 3, just the best of the best! And the Thistle Scottish Rugby podcast has made the podium! Castwaway as I am down in Australia, disconnected from all things Scottish in rugby finding this podcast has allowed me to reconnect to the game back home at both international and the grassroots level. I love the spread of the coverage, the honesty and authenticity of the reporting and the good old Scottish humour blending each episode together. Keep it up lads. Australia needs you!
