Insightful pod - but where’s the RWC coverage?
I really like listening to this podcast for a comprehensive look at all things Scottish rugby - it’s rare to have a pod with the focus on Scotland! Good interviewees and insights. But unless I’m missing something obvious, I don’t think there has been an episode since the World Cup started? A bit confused as at the end of previous episode it said there would be RWC coverage throughout...
If you’re going to do a professional podcast after a game of rugby, you should have at least done some basic analysis on the key moments before pressing record. Pondering why Cowan-Dickie was exposed out of position for the penalty try in the Calcutta cup - every other report I’ve seen had worked it out! Basically, most other rugby pods are better
All brilliant especially the ones about greg laidlaw my favourite was the one about his life in France
