Easily the best intro song on a Scottish rugby podcast around.

Provides solid analysis on bacon rolls and also talks about all things Scottish rugby. Great dudes!

Great Stuff!

Fantastic, informative and funny, this podcast covers the things no other pods seems to care about - all things Scottish!

Brightening My Week

I have searched for rugby podcasts and was always disappointed until now. No one ever covers enough Scottish rugby for me (being a huge Glasgow fan in the US this is vital)! Keep it up, and I love the quizzes.
