AYNE 407 - THE CAPTAINS TABLE - David Flatman (in association with Loch Lomond Whiskies)
The Captain is joined this week by David Flatman - a former England, Bath & Saracens prop forward who now is one of the leading rugby TV presenters, podcasters and after-dinner speakers. One of the funniest, outspoken and most popular guys in rugby - his choice of dinner on board tells you everything you need to know about the mentality of the paid up members of the Front Row Union....

AYNE 404 - The Groundsmen
This week our Groudsmen really let rip over meaningless tournaments, unsustainable governance, outdated sponsorship packages, the Lions, joyless Olympics. And the end of college sport. Parental guidance advised.
AYNE 402 - Brett Gosper
On the Pumpjack Dataworks Big Interview this week, we welcome Brett Gosper onto the show. The newly appointed Head of the NFL in UK & Europe, Brett was formerly CEO of World Rugby from 2012-2020, and prior to that one of the senior figures in the global advertising industry. A fine rugby player in his own right - who represented the Racing Club de France for 9 years - and had it not been for the mercurial brilliance of David Campese, could well have been a regular in the Wallaby set up.
