Offshoot Jim

Really enjoying the JH offshoot specials, good humour but getting deeper and some great insights in to many aspects of professional rugby.
Only problem is the carefully crafted presentation of Jim as being not so smart is now being shattered. He is coming across as thoughtful and dare I say a master of the podcast interview! 👏🏼

It’s mustard

Best rugby pod out there by a long way. Humourous, intelligent rugby chat.

Love this pod but give Dragons a break

Love this pod. Only thing that bugs me is constant slating of the Dragons. Yes our record is terrible but you mention them all the time for losing but didnt even mention their win against Scarlets the other week. They also have some quality players who deserve a bit more respect, give em a break!
