    Season 4- Episode 12: Huw Jones' Bacon Buttie

    Glasgow lost in Europe and have lost Dave Rennie. Edinburgh drew and Watsonians are top of the Super 6. Gordie Reid is a firestarter (maybe?) and Huw Jones was seen with a bacon buttie (allegedly).

Customer Reviews

MOmadeTXpaid ,

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!

I Miss Ron Elving ,

Great Stuff!

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

Boston Rugger ,

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.
