Gavin Hickie is a Master Class
Binged all 12 interviews in the catalog over the past 3 days.... Gavin Hickie is phenomenal. Great guests, keep em coming. By asking challenging front-office type questions, the audience gets to learn so much. The answers provided by the GMs have been extremely insightful.
Love hearing from GMs like Mike “Magic” Sheehan (who sounds like a guy who not only leads from the front, but has fun doing it) and Adam Freier (who’s vision for the future of club/grassroots rugby is inspiring).
Keep it up Hickey and let the kiwi get a word in ever now and then!
Thoughtfully done and insightful
Gavin and James you’ve done a great job with this podcast. Great discussion send phenomenal Guest panel. Keep it going
