Having taken 8 hours to get from London to Stratford on Avon, thanks to 2 crashes on M25 and having to turn back at Oxford having got through it as wife left phone in the car 🤬😡🤬😡☠️ (Mani make room under that patio please), I had loads of time to catch up on some podcasts.
The best of which was the House of Rugby episode with Haskell & Robshaw.
Was surprised how close they seemed, it was actually quite sweet!
It’s a good listen, although the Eddie haters may want to skip some of it as they are very complimentary of him.
For everyone else it offers a peak behind the curtain.
Just spotted this video, which is weird as it relates to Australia and the 2014 Bledisloe Cup, celebrating the presence of Michael Hooper and Adam Ashley-Cooper in the Ozzie team! Back to the future as AAC has been recalled to the 2019 RWC squad.
