Great weekly jnsights

Great panel and one up. Particularly like Lawrence’s facilitation and ex player insights as well as Jonesy’s controversial but stimulating thoughts.

Clive & Felix ,

It’s a team game

This combo of insightful journalism (Owen Slot, Stuart Barnes) and recent ex player knowledge (Dallaglio) is a far superior alternative to some of the more laddish alternatives. Keep it up gents!
