Good banter

A great way to keep up with the build up for the RWC.

Ivanapinyon ,

Not great.

Had some good guests at times, but the level of analysis is poor at times from the news hub people. Ross Karl is about the poorest analyst you will ever have the misfortune to hear. Talking in tired cliches, contradicting themselves. It’s amateur hour.

Georgie_Campbell ,

Great listen!

Fab rugby banter. Very entertaining. Would highly recommend a listen!
