Barry loves potholes, Trimby loves penguins

    Ep 16 // Any Given Penguin

    On today’s show we do our best not to mention the G word. No not Gowl, Georgia. So instead we talk about exploding wasps, Johnny May as a rejected Olympic skeletonian, birthdays in 2020 and how sick family members would be such a ball ache if Aliens landed.

    David Humphreys // The Weekly Pothole

    Trimby gets all excited as Daddy Humphs joins us to talk about his current role with Georgia ahead of their game against Ireland on Sunday. We ask him how he developed such a vast variety of skills as a player and reminisce on how Jonah Lomu rained on his parade in Lansdowne road in 2001. There’s also a big reveal as Humphs and Trimby disclose which Ulster player caused a management investigation after a “David Humphreys” parody account was created on Twitter.

    Ep 15 // Saving Private Penguin

    On today’s show we discuss how just like D-day at Normandy, Ireland’s attacking operation was blasted into smithereens while Maro Itoje danced on the corpses of our fallen foreigners. We also compare the loss to Prince Charles’ relationship with the duke of Edinburgh while Captain James Ryan serenades his team mates with Boys to Men’s hit song 'End of The Road'.

    Freddy talks to us about the importance of Argentina’s win over the All Blacks, how time travellers placed Einstein, Galileo & Pablo Matera on Earth to influence mankind. We tackle sensitive topics like kicking Bret Cobain up the arse and becoming the Che Guevara of cutting off clamps in The University of Limerick. He’s a mad bastard

both Baz and Andrew former bachelors who have engineered many team project successes, are well positioned to discuss the various ways Rugby can be understood via cinematic analogy
