The Rugby Pod is the Dogs Nuts

I’ve been following the pod for years and it’s kept me sane on my travels with work in Asia and now the United States. Request not to be too ‘orrible to Gloucester 🙏🙏 praying for ring fence.

I love the pod, I nearly wet myself laughing when Jim didn’t realize he was saying Chicago. Highlight of my pod listening week is the Rugby Pod, keep up the great work guys. Mikey SDallas

Banter is great and all, but only when it’s relevant. Tuned in for rugby news, tuned out when the discussion somehow went to bathroom habits.
