This is one hell of a pod. More about life and challenges than rugby. Going to say the best episode of the show and it should win some kind of award or recognition. Well done.

Alex Payne is the reason this show is so good. The James Haskell can't get a game for his club and needs to look for a new podcast too. #differentclass
