World Cup final

Brilliant analysis from all concerned, particularly from Alex who is a really fine host. Infectious enthusiasm. I listened to all the rugby pods this World Cup, and whilst I have enjoyed them all, I have enjoyed Alex’s the most.

His analysis of England’s repeated failings over the last 2 years after brilliant performances demonstrates that there is still some psychological weakness when facing real adversity - out there on the pitch. But they are in good company. The England World Cup winners in 2003 had repeated set backs prior to that win. And the All Blacks between 1987 and 2007 repeated blow up on the big stage in the knockout phases of the World Cup.

Congratulations to South Africa for an extraordinarily dominant performance!

Perfect honest rugby scoop!

Cheers Alex, really great insights and from a reliable source being a successful player at the elite level.

Only thing I'd change, get a Pop Shield for your recording, it's so loud when you say P or B!

Keep it up man!

Interesting take on rugby from the US

Great to hear that rugby is growing in popularity and coverage in the US. Could be better produced and structured. Sometimes comes across as put together and recorded on the hoof by enthusiastic rugby disciples rather than slick professional broadcasters, notwithstanding the eminent and undoubted credentials of NBC. Post RWC 2019 and commercials understood, maybe develop and shape podcast to encompass more grassroots & rugby fan feedback and interaction, plus it’s a game for all shapes and sizes, young and old, definitely the women’s game too, in order to promote the cultural characteristics of the game (q.v. the growth in popularity and participation in women’s soccer in the US). If the game gets pigeon-holed as just a sport for physically enormous jocks, it’ll likely remain a passing sporting spectacle. Play like the Brave Blossoms and emphasise the sporting camaraderie off the field. Fit, friendly, respectful, yes tough physically, but off-field friendships for life.
Thanks & good luck.
