Generic and filled with cliches
The lowlight for me was reading supporters tweets. The hosts seemed amazed that saracens fans disagreed with Glasgow fans about who was going to win the then upcoming saracens v Glasgow game. That minute or so summed up this podcast, very shallow stuff.
Cliche filled, not a patch on other rugby podcasts
Afraid to say this is the worst rugby pod on the market. Tom May out of touch with the game & Emma Thurston seemingly out of her depth, cliche after cliche without any real opinions.
Give this one a miss!
Decent Preview of European Rugby
Excellent analysis, mixed with decent player/coach input (not all bland). A well put together podcast.
Let’s get it even better as season progresses 🏉👏
