    Season 4- Episode 12: Huw Jones' Bacon Buttie

    Glasgow lost in Europe and have lost Dave Rennie. Edinburgh drew and Watsonians are top of the Super 6. Gordie Reid is a firestarter (maybe?) and Huw Jones was seen with a bacon buttie (allegedly).

No bad

Aye no bad, which roughing translates to it’s really good. I live in Canada so don’t have any work colleagues that I can chat rugby with, so spend many hours in my car listening to it. The rugby club I play for has a few English chaps in it-so pure abuse I get off of them...one day the shoe will be on the other foot.
