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...
All brilliant especially the ones about greg laidlaw my favourite was the one about his life in France
Enjoy listening to the podcast....the one from 27th June however felt like a bit of a love in......would have expected much more challenging questions to coo. All questions felt like an opportunity for him to say how well SRU are doing through pandemic.
