    WRP 185 - Super Saturday

    WRP 185 - Super Saturday. The final round of the 6 Nation is upon us with England going over to France for the Grand Slam game against France. Ireland take on Scotland in a fascinating contest in Belfast and Italy and Wales battle it out at The Principality stadium for the wooden spoon. Injuries Red Rose star Sarah Bern gives her incredible insight not only to the final round of games but also events last weekend. "Berner" was at Twickenham to witness another great occasion and tells us what it was like on "the other side." England's performance is spoken about and indeed Ireland's. Berner also looks back at the Wales, France game and the Scotland Italy match; she picks out where the games were won and the tactics used. New contracts in New Zealand's for 40 Black Ferns is chatted about and do these news stories about their fiercest rivals make a splash in camp. There is also a full preview of those final round games; can Scotland grab that World Cup spot and finish third, can Ireland bounce back mentally and physically from their Twickenham mauling? How do wales pick themselves up, will playing at The Principality help or hinder? And what is it like to play away in France, can that crowd make the different or are England too strong; what are we likely to see in selection and who will be the winners?

    WRP 183 - Our very own rosarian

    WRP 183 - Our very own rosarian

    WWRP 183 - Our very own rosarian. She's back, England coach and our co-host Sarah Hunter returns after a rather busy time! "Sunter" tells us about coaching in the 6 Nations rather than playing in it; her comfort levels following that transition and where the line is drawn in number of games of Tuk Tuk (listen to fully understand!). The opening two performances of The Red Roses are digested, where things have gone right, where needs to be tightened up and what we can expect in terms of selection for the rest of the tournament. We also hear the post-match thoughts of Zoe Aldcroft as she won her 50th cap at Ashton Gate. Sunter also looks at how the other nations have faired so far; how Scotland's recent run has given them confidence and how that has manifested into their play. She also runs her eye over France, Italy, Wales and Ireland, now with her old coach running the show. There's all the news from Rori as well, with results from SA's tour match, Super Rugby W and Aupiki and some shout outs with a special tribute from Sunter to Vicki Cornborough who announced her retirement this week.
