    Happiness Is... Nathan Hines [Ep 77]

    Happiness Is... Nathan Hines [Ep 77]

    Nathan Hines arrived in Scotland from Australia to go walkabout. He always seems relaxed about life & rugby and he was blissfully unaware that his 6 months travelling would turn into years spent as a professional player in Scotland, England, Ireland, France & representing Scotland & the British & Irish Lions amd starting his family so far from home.
    I always love talking to him and I was delighted when he agreed to come on the pod.
    I hope you enjoy listening.

    Happiness Is... Liza Groenendijk & Judith Machado [Ep 74]

    Happiness Is... Liza Groenendijk & Judith Machado [Ep 74]

    The Women's 6 Nations has smashed glass ceilings all over Europe, the players are growing in status, coverage is improving & the following continues multiply.
    These players & teams stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before.
    40 years ago, in the Dutch city of Utrecht, the very first Women's Rugby International took place between the Netherlands & France.
    I had the honour of speaking to the captains of both teams! Liza Groenendijk & Judith Machado.
    Neither woman had any idea what the future held, but they loved the game & wanted to play at the highest level possible. They are the TRAILBLAZERS with AMAZING stories to tell.
    I LOVED speaking to them, I hope you enjoy listening.

    Happiness Is... Bruce Douglas [Ep 72]

    Happiness Is... Bruce Douglas [Ep 72]

    My mate Bruce! 
    Many moons ago, I met Bruce Douglas as part of the Scottish Schools u18 team. Quiet, massive, likeable and a very good player. The only one of the group to go on to win a full cap.
    His journey is a great story, he's a smart guy, Rugby isn't his everything and he is now a successful businessman. I love speaking to him, I love listening to him and I was delighted when he agreed to be a guest on the pod. Kinda want to work for him!
    I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did.

Passionate about Rugby

Bruce is consistent when it comes to rugby. He genuinely loves rugby and it comes across. If you are a fan of rugby then this is a podcast for you.

His short pods provide great insights being the scenes at Murrayfield and clearly display his love and passion for all things rugby, Edinburgh Rugby and Scotland which can be appreciated by everyone regardless of their personal allegiances
