    Washington Commanders defensive end Efe Obada, and New York Giants punter Jamie Gillan, aka the Scottish Hammer, are with Alex, Hask and Tinds this week for a GB&R with a difference.

    Summer Tours debrief with Tom Wood

    Summer Tours debrief with Tom Wood

    With Alex away it’s left to Hask and Tinds to steer the ship. They are joined by Hask's old teammate, the former Northampton and England back-row Tom Wood. Having just retired the boys discuss what's in store for him after rugby, a particularly pertinent subject on this week's show given Ryan Jones' dementia diagnosis. Unusually there's plenty of on-field chat, too, after Ireland’s historic and transformative series win in New Zealand. We also break down the rest of the action across the Summer Tours, focusing on England's win against the Wallabies and Eddie Jones' fan engagement skills.

    Kruis Control

    George Kruis is with us to look back on his career - a journey that started on the wing and ended up in the engine room at Saracens, England and in Japan. So why now for retirement, when he can still perform at the very highest level and backheel conversions with the best of them? And after a bruising weekend in the southern hemisphere, we try to figure out the way back for the home nations who have a lot to do.

    The Summer Tours

    International summer rugby fills the next few weekends, so the boys take a look ahead to what's in store. They start with England who take on a rejuvenated Wallabies. The Eddie Jones’ era was just getting underway the last time England toured Australia in 2016 and you may remember - he barely mentions it - but our very own Hask won man of the series. The boys turn back the clock and relive some of those stellar performances and also pick a 23-man World XV squad, made up of the four travelling home nations and the southern hemisphere giants.
