A great podcast

Hi this is Tom Perrin living in Ireland but from England.I love rugby and support England. This podcast is one of my favourites and I’m always looking for the newest one. Please don’t take a summer break as these podcasts are fantastic. 😂You guys talk about great topics and the quiz is class. My favourite player is Sam Underhill as I love his Tackles and Tackling is also my strength within rugby. Any chance of maybe getting him on the Pod soon.
