The return of James Haskell, Mike Tindall and Alex Payne in a brand new show. The Good, The Bad & The Rugby carries on the tradition of great guests, insight, laughter and tears that they've shared over the past three years.
Jack Nowell, Exeter, and a Wardrobe Toilet
Alex, James and Mike are joined by Exeter's Jack Nowell to talk through the Chief's dramatic Heineken Champions Cup win against Racing 92, and discover what happened on the night out that followed. Plus, who's got a hyperbaric chamber and why, who bought night vision goggles, and what on earth is Stuart Hogg putting on his legs. All that plus a live Zoom audience and Kyle Sinckler's wardrobe toilet.
The 2020 RPA Awards Show
Alex and James play host to the 2020 RPA Awards Show, live from their living rooms. It's a smorgasbord of interviews, excitement, laughter and tears as the best of the best from across the men's and women's game are rewarded for their outstanding contributions at the prestigious black tie (or t-shirt or pyjamas) event. Hear from some of the biggest names in World Rugby as they collect their gongs, and chew the fat in the usual TGTG&TR style.

The Heineken Champions Cup Special: Includes Subarus and Noogies
Ahead of the 2020 Heineken Champions Cup Final Alex, James and Mike turn back the clock to discuss what it's like to win the tournament and argue the best games, the most iconic players, the best away trips, and the greatest nights out. Full of fantastic stories, incidents, private jets, Clément Poitrenaud, Subaru Impreza Turbo's, nightclubs in rural Italy, noogies and reminiscences about the great Anthony Foley, this is an edition not to be missed.
The Inspirational Alex Corbisiero
Alex, James and Mike are joined by the former England and Lions loosehead Alex Corbisiero as he comes to terms with the return of cancer, just over a year after being first diagnosed. In a truly inspirational and remarkably upbeat 90 minutes, the guys discuss the power of dads, fear of death, THAT try, coming to terms with a failing body on and off the field and why you converse with absolutely everyone in the chemo room. Plus there's tributes to Chris Robshaw and Brad Barritt, and to the fortitude of Joe Marler.
Johnny Sexton's Magical Wonderland
Alex and James are joined by one of the very best to have played the game over the past decade, Leinster and Ireland captain Johnny Sexton, to talk Irish rugby, credit ratings, the mental stress of leadership, critical dads, Soldier Field, what exactly James called Johnny and why Nigel Owens was so offended by it.
Lifting the Lid & We Don't Mean James's Hair-Do
Alex, James and Mike put the rugby world to rights as they discuss superstars, Saracens, semi-finals, and locked out spectators. And then ahead of publication of his autobiography, James reveals for the first time what really happened with Martin Johnson and Stuart Lancaster at consecutive World Cups, the nightmare of the New Zealand maid, the infamous Altitude Nightclub incident and how he almost killed Rory Best. "I'll save that for the book" just became a reality.

Wondered what had happened with no new pods on the previous channel, then found this! Outstanding pod, great content being informative, funny and easy to listen to. Well done team
Excellent format and fantastic guests
Great to listen to on the road and just as enjoyable to watch when I have time.
Mainly crap banter with a bit of rugby chat.
