Great pod

What a great podcast ! Chris Ashton is actually a decent bloke (and us southerns don’t need an interpreter to understand him), good to hear Chris experiences in Japan, loving it. Clive Bournemouth

The Dual Nationality Debate and Elusive Hash Browns

I’m a long time listener and pod fan, based in Asia. Absolutely loving the increased output and stellar line up of Pod guests you’ve brought in for the RWC.

A penny for your thoughts…..In the same way players can be ‘captured’ by a nation when handed a senior cap, is there a general consensus of a similar process for dual nationality rugby supporters? My 18 month old daughter is half English, half Australian. It was a matter of honour to dress her head to toe in the Red Rose, when she attended her first ever England game versus Argentina last week in Tokyo. Now we’re facing the Aussies on Saturday, the lines have been drawn and she’s surely now a lifelong England supporter? As a man of ‘mixed heritage’ perhaps Chris J has some thoughts on this?

On a side note, Tom Fordyce and co were lamenting in a recent pod about the elusiveness of hash browns in Japan. They do cracking ones at the Hiltons in Osaka and Tokyo…. Or is it only the ITV budgets that stretch that far because I’m pretty sure Ugo was happily tucking in there!

Many Thanks for all the fantastic analysis chaps, keep up the great work!

Good pod

I think it needs Ugo for balance but good pod nonetheless.
