The mid-year international season is in full swing with all the top tier teams in action, this week’s Talking Rugby looks ahead to all these clashes.
Joining Dave is Shane fromwww.whiffofcordite.com, an excellent rugby blog with many followers that offers an alternative view (similarly to our show!) from the print media. The panel is completed by regulars Alan, Doc, Daithi while Ulster exile Michael drops in during the show.
0:00 – The team say hi!
2:40 – In rainsoaked conditions, Scotland outmuscled a weakened Australia in Newcastle. A game only for the purists!
9:15 – We also look ahead to Australia’s next test against Wales on Saturday, a game that is set to excite!
17:30 – It is set to a bish-bosh battle as South Africa host England, with South Africa starting a new era under new coach Heyneke Meyer.
28:20 – In another dour round of games, Toulouse and Toulon secured their places in the Top14 Final at Stade de France. Will the French aristocrats or the ‘mercenaries’ take the French title?
50:25 – It was a historic day for Irish Rugby as the Ireland U20s stunned their South African counterparts in the IRB Junior World Championship.
55:30 – It’s the first test between Ireland and New Zealand, with Ireland still searching for that long awaited elusive win over the ABs. Our panel are less than confident of that wait coming to an end soon!
1:09:50 – Bet of the Week!
