Round two of the URC has produced another bumper pod - it is safe to say that this is not one to listen to with the kids! A poor game between the Dragons and Cardiff, barely anyone watching the Ospreys game and some lovely scenery being the only thing worth watching with the Scarlets all get discussed in detail. The expectations for this weekends games are not much more encouraging but it is safe to say that the boys are firmly backing the regions to come through this and find a way back to the top half of the table - even if it takes some honest conversations and hard truths.

RWC Tier 2 Round up

2023-10-1201:14:03

The story of RWC2023 so far has been the style of rugby that Tier 2 nations are playing and the man who has been championing Tier 2 rugby for 20+ years is Francisco Isaac.

Despite the temptation to dive straight in to discussing the quarter final - the boys begin with a few pre-season game reviews and the prospects for the coming season. Some are more enthusiastic than others to discuss them but the need for better coverage of these types of games is obvious. Conversation then turns to France - the good bits from the Georgia game, the impressive performances, the unfortunate injuries, the players putting hands up for Argentina - then the injuries, the call up, the options, the tactics and how Argentina can be beaten. We also discuss the Portugal v Fiji game, which was a joy to watch - almost as much as last weeks guest Francisco's reaction on social media was. More games like this we need - not less, if World Rugby are listening. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
We had the pleasure of welcoming back Francisco Isaac to the pod tonight - not only one of the most knowledgeable and experienced journalists in European rugby circles but also a fantastic person to talk to.

We take a look at the best games from last weekend, how the Tier 2 nations are fairing, some of the marketing decisions made by World Cup organisers and then on to the final weekend of the pool rounds. There is honesty, humour and even a bit of politics in this one - enjoy! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
