The Hadleigh Parkes Of Rugby Podcasts

Enjoyable rugby podcast that's certainly worth subscribing to. Made by 2 Cardiff University Students it's a Welsh rugby pod essentially but also covers Top 14 and International rugby.

Presented and Produced by Illtud supported with expert analysis from Steffan, I have to say it's actually lot better than some of the more established rugby podcasts on the market. It's certainly in my top 3 of rugby podcasts. I just hope that next season it becomes more of a regular podcast instead of just every now and again. Good work lads.
