I only listened to this episode to here your take on the England win. Surprise surprise no review of the game. Zero humble pie from a pair of cu#ts. Lee your f’ing english!

Used to love it , but Josh turning show into a left wing rant and touched with ever increasing wokeism
Merlin Japan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/08/24
Used to be so good. Now utterly joyless. Listen if you want 20 mins of inverse snobbery and observational comedy (garlic bread?!), zero analysis, and a world of negativity towards the game and anyone who dares not to subscribe exactly to their world view.

This podcast used to be very funny pre Covid when they seemed to target their humour to people and players in the sport . It was always in my top 3 . For a long time now the rugby is becoming more and more marginalised and it seems to be a platform for political opinion more than ever which is...Read full review »

Hands down, my favorite podcast. Lee and Josh are a perfect pair, and there is more insight and humor in each episode than all the other rugby podcasts combined. I highly recommend you subscribe, and, like me, support them through their page to get all the extras, bonus episodes, and...Read full review »
The Scrum of the Earth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/22
Lee Calvert takes time out from the terrific Nessun Dorma podcast to natter about all things rugby with Josh Gardner taking time out from his rugby shirt obsession. Funny, irreverent, and even insightful. Recommended for all rugby fans, especially James Haskell-haters.

Was grate pod. but now they want you to pay for it. I pay enough to watch for rugby
Mulac987654321 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/05/21
Have enjoyed the podcast for 18 months - and disappointed to see a large chunk of it disappear behind the patreon paywall - though of course that is right of Lee and Josh. But the remnant is poor - barely any rugby matches/performances discussed but still plenty of content aimed at patrons such...Read full review »
Khlongtoei via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/31/21
Sadly the show that was like joining a room full of friends who added insight and laughter to rugby, appears to have become the room where you see two blokes round a table just moaning together. Everyone else is now just wrong and they have become all they ridicule. All that and almost no rugby...Read full review »

You two never fail to cheer me up! Lx
lydwray via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/21
The depth and quality of the insight is second to none. But this is outshone by an overly negative take. Lee and Josh take a lot of criticism for being ‘woke’, which they are not. But in a world full of hate there is no need to be throwing so much shade at some issues/individuals whilst...Read full review »
JAJ_87 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/22/20
I love this podcast. It’s hilarious and always worth listening to. As an aside, Friend of the Pod Jonny McGinty has literally never made a tackle despite playing for 12 or so years
SpankyBluePanda via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/10/20
Please don’t stop hammering your woke, left-wing agenda as I’m not sure I could cope with rugby being solely the domain of podcasts a little to the right of the BNP. I listen to B&M for interesting and informed rugby discussion but the thing that convinced me to become a patreon supporter was...Read full review »
Aaron_Bennett via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/06/20
This podcast is at best naive and at worst blindly ignorant of science, facts and actual studies on the impact of Trans athletes in sport in the context of a contact sport. They are wilfully and openly ignoring science as if it’s an inconvenience that goes against their “woke” narrative. I truly...Read full review »
JBG1809 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/04/20
But now is so ear achingly woke I can’t cope anymore. Used to be two chaps chatting insightfully about rugby. Now two (white, middle class) chaps taking about: 1. How racist rugby is 2. How wonderful it is that people are pulling down statues 3. How offensive Exeter Chiefs are 4. How anyone with...Read full review »
Ben_Oh via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/29/20
Great rugby podcast. Don’t always agree with them, including music and rugby opinions, but always worth a listen. And still worth tuning into without any live rugby to talk about.
Guccibag via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/21/20
Some how listening to the maudlin keeps me upbeat cheers chaps
akawd40 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/31/20
Loved it , loved the game , from a time when pace was all and players ran at space not contact , loved the ref telling the fatties to"shut up " at scrum time - great chat better than real rugby ?Read full review »

Can you review the lions matches made famous by the 99 call great pod cast Neil Caerphilly
caerphilly dragon via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/28/20
Review the Fiji v Wales RWC07 match, (obviously still hurts from a welsh point of view 😂) loads of versions on YouTube, but let’s be honest probably great from a neutral POV
Rhysj92 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/18/20
A consistently excellent pod cast. Always really interesting and funny. Keep up the excellent work.
Lanarklad78 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/15/20
Listened for years, the most relatable rugby podcast I listen to by some margin. Their opinions are worryingly so similar to my own that I sometimes feel I’m listening to my mates discuss rugby. Keep up the good yet angry sweary work lads
Welsh gal via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/18/19
Big Lol has really developed as a presenter in the last few weeks - solid analysis, good humor and thoughtful insights. Barnsie also excellent. This review will self destruct to one star the second Jones returns. Let’s save “Controversy for the sake of it ” to Katie Hopkins.
Malevik22 via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 12/10/19
Lee is fabulous, Josh is tedious and repetitive. The sycophancy when the terminally unfunny Mike Bubbins appears is nauseating.
Stephen Jones Sunday Times via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/12/19
Got to be one of the best rugby podcasts. Lee and Josh have a unique style. Well worth a listen.
Gingerdad via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/06/19
This is the best rugby podcast. The most knowledgable, the most hilarious, and coming from the most genuine place. One of very few podcasts that I genuinely look forward to and save for the best moment to listen to it. Loads of insightful analysis and rewarding inside jokes, words can’t...Read full review »
OliElFox via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/17/19
Still the only rugby pod you need to listen to, Covers all angles: Knowledgeable, insightful, rugby obsessed (but with perspective) not pandering to any individuals, nations, organisations. And furiously, gloriously silly. Inhabiting it’s own little world, but never knowingly taking itself too...Read full review »

Used to enjoy this but has become tediously negative
Man with no name II via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/27/19
This is the best rugby podcast available and the extra content through Patron for a small charge is so worth it.

The Wrestling Steve Diamond / Numb skits had me nearly soiling myself laughing
J9brianlord via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/24/19
The royal rumble was one of the best things I’ve ever heard. The mental image of Di Young in a unitard 👌🏻
Bobert23 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/25/19
Have somehow missed this and now going through the surreal experience of catching up listening to previews of very old games
Exile 66 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/06/19
Love this show. Makes me very happy. Funny, informative, relaxed. Ploughing through old episodes just for the laughs.
Richie0802 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/26/19
Lee and Josh provide an insightful, light hearted and honest review of the weeks rugby offerings. Their knowledge of the game is surprisingly accurate given their ability to find an amusing tangent to wander off on with alarming regularity. For just over a year I have been an avid listener and...Read full review »

Other podcasts pander to current pros and provide generic analysis. These guys are insightful, funny and honest. Get it in your podcast feed.
Martinlikeschips via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/05/18
A real sweary melange of rugby chat and general fukwittery, it’s laugh out loud funny and the best listen all week. Just not safe to listen too with my son in the car... Keep up the work boys - now listening to your back catalogue
Swiny1969 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/19/18
Very funny ...... but not just funny for fun sake ....... make a lot sense (sorry guys you do!!!) Good this week...... discovering this Podcast!!!!!!
Aido40 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/27/18
Maybe not the most informed and maybe they don’t get the biggest guest, and maybe they shoot of on some wild tangents, but definitely the funniest and share my out look on rugby. Look forward to there take every week!
bookie_16 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/19/18
100 plus episodes of cracking punditry. The guys don’t go for hype and say it as they see it. It’s like listening to two good mates in the pub. They manage to get a good coverage of rugby across the home nations which is refreshing. Whilst I don’t think I will ever forgive you for giving Ulster...Read full review »
ulster fan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/18/18
Informative and irreverent in equal measure - lost count of the habitual f-work usage. Unnecessary and loses impact- also stops me recommending it to my rugby mad boys. Shame!
tartanbones via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/11/18
Good knowledge and debate ruined by the hosts' tourettes. Swearing in a broadcast is fine for emphasis, but not when used in a moronic manner. Shame, because it belittles a relatively educated and healthy debate on our great game.Read full review »
Bronze Age Man via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/28/18
Come for the informative, funny and (mostly) balanced views of a couple of real rugby fans. Stay for the niche Simpsons references and excellent ranting meltdowns on modern-day social issues.
Gaz Gordge via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 02/16/18
Very funny and balanced and brilliantly manages to promote rugby while completely railing against the terrible tropes (“spirit of rugby” and “lads lads lads”) that are held up by so many (including other unnamed inexplicably popular podcasts) as the reason the game is great. Lee is very fair and...Read full review »
Calbertinho via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/06/18
This pod has continued to grow and improve every week it is published. Two great guys who love the game but add a certain comical cynicism to proceeding. Completely left field and left wing. Excellent
