A fun, light-hearted take on French rugby!

This is a fun podcast with two hosts who have good banter. Interesting guests and your best source of insight into the Top 14 in the UK!

Good fun review of the game

Good humoured, knowledgable, well-connected chat from the indomitable Veronique and Mike.
Can’t wait for a troisième mi-temps autour d’un verre in London once we’re allowed out. Au Club Gascon, évidemment.

Magnifique new rugby podcast

Well done Veronique and Mike for an excellent new addition to the rugby podcast field, finding a great spot in that crowded market to focus on the game from a French perspective: mainly the Top 14 but European competition too. I enjoyed the player interviews and liked the promise of more to come. Learning a few words of French each week from you is handy too, even if I don’t aspire to be a Champions Cup referee. In the sad absence of any UK TV coverage of the French league, you are helping to illuminate the game there to an English-speaking audience. Please keep up the good work. Bonne chance.
