Great listen

Really enjoyable light hearted podcast, one of the best RL ones.

Uber ChOff ,

Ok for a Leigh supporter

These guys really do love Rugby League, the banter is good and they are willing to touch on contentious issues. I listen to it weekly and enjoy the discussions, and despite the fact that neither of them are Wire fans they do know a bit about Rugby League. I particularly like the way the co-hosts try and score points if each other with Rugby League Trivia - the best Rugby League podcast out there !

Superb!

Having listened to the first two episodes I think this is possibly the best Rugby League podcast on iTunes, the hosts are clearly passionate about the sport and cover a wide range of issues.

Its also refreshing to cover all levels of the pro game in the UK and of course the Catalan Dragons. If they were ever to add pieces about the National Conference and other parts of the amateur game it'll be the complete RL package.

The quality of the actual audio recording is also superb, certainly puts some other podcasts out there to shame.

Keep up the good work guys, looking forward to see what you've got up your sleeves as the season unfolds.
