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!

Sound quality

Check the material before you send it out. I know it’s difficult with Covid-19 but recent podcast it’s extremely difficult to hear Dan Lyle, maybe better editing required

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!
