I love this podcast and look forward to it every week, just listened to the one with Ross tucker. What a top bloke, informative, unbiased and looking to make changes for the welfare of players and the good of the game. Great stuff! Oh and flats and shanks aren’t bad either 😝

The only rugby pod that I’ve never been bored of. Doesn’t take itself too seriously but great insight in to the game. Keep up the good work gents.

Look forward to it as it never fails to make laugh. Knowledgable and considered rugby chat but also love the TV/film recommendations! Keep up the great work. 👍🏻

It’s ok. I listen every year. Would be better if they played more songs (Spice Girls, Metallica etc.)

A large muscular man in Bath talking windows and Land Rovers, a day walker in Penarth not talking about his feelings and Land Rovers.. great podcast. Listen every week

That you can entice Gats and Eddie Jones on your pod to preview the six nations?

Great listen whilst out for a stroll, getting strange looks walking along laughing to myself!! Good chat👍🏻

Great free podcast, with two funny and knowledgable chaps.

Great independent podcast featuring enjoyable chat and banter built around the love of food, what to watch and Rugby Union.
Martybay via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/13/23
What’s not to like when you mix these boys with a bit of Bath & Penarth talk, what to watch on TV, this weeks meat montage, places to eat, Turkish coffee (top brew at Lulu’s) and the dreadful driving skills of the British public! Love it!

They’re not wrong, it is casual - 5 stars
Harry Glue via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/09/23
Absolutely love it
Delinho79 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/07/23
One of the best pods about food/rugby/tv/books/movies/watches/cooking in the entire world.

Good BBQ tips
Ed_Bob81 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/06/23
Love all the random chat with the rugby update. You guys got me into The Crown, haven’t heard your views on season 5. Must check out Field and Flower. Keep up the splendid work.

Great podcast

One of the best.

Always a favourite in my weekly podcast cycle listening to two old mates having a chat about life and sports
RoryKSmith via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/05/23
Very funny, dry humour with good top level rugby insight, excellent edition this week. Daft pair of buggers but they are v funny and knowledgeable
Humbero19 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/04/23
Two very funny intelligent men bring their own take to the current Rugby Scene and life in general. Amongst the laid back ‘chat’ is often some excellent insight and views. Not sure if it is my favourite Rugby pod but defo on top two! Well done.

Becoming more of a moan about how Flats didn’t gain enough England caps and a further moan about how many fans bother him. He thinks it’s self deprecating but it’s boring and all about his career and fans that supposedly harass him. He’s beginning to think he’s Elvis
Lucky Londoner via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/16/22
Great funny show with a bit of rugby thrown in too. Great chemistry between the two fellas and never fails to make me laugh.
Frapey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/04/22
A Partridge meets Brent spin-off show disguised as a rugby podcast.
smeg95 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/08/22
Great pod, glad to have you back,
Andy Mace via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/20/22
We used to be treated to a few jokes and then some rugby chat. Now we have what seems like hours of product placement and shout outs for the freebies they have picked up. One minute Flats hates Sky, cancelled it and would not go there again - abracadabra loves it and has all the channels and...Read full review »

Best podcast out. Great banter
A Hails via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/16/22
I’m not sure why this exists, its a “rugby” pod but when it comes to talking rugby Flats especially doesn’t appear interested (Shanks is only interested in Welsh involvements and shoe horning them and Office quotes in). If the doing the pod is an inconvenience in your life then simple don’t do...Read full review »

Absolutely love this podcast. I used to listen to Sky news to help me nod off to sleep but ive now turned to listening to these 2 chew the fat about all sorts of stuff. The rugby is a bonus & both say what we are all thinking. Keep up the good work lads..best pod out there x
beach-bum Wales via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/10/22
Enjoyed this seasons shows, great mix of stuff and rugby. On the watching front have you looked at Professor T on itv ? Much to my surprise it was watchable and funny, loved the ‘Reggie Perrin’ moments
grapelli2 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/03/22
If you are remotely interested in the REAL "beautiful game", then set this podcast to auto-download. Silky, raucous, risqué, humorous, knowledgable.....are all attributes that will come with time....😂 Seriously though - the boys are super-talented, super-engaging and super-natural. 👻 Enjoy!Read full review »

Even if your not rugby fan, this is a great podcast. Two good mates having chat about life in general and then delving into rugby of the past week. Easy to listen to and most enjoyable.
Colnel Dijon via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/18/22
Back listening regularly and really enjoying the blend of rugby chat & analysis mixed with life chat (bbq/food/tv/golf/observations). A great listen on a break from work.
vinrouge1938 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/14/22
Great pod guys - painful to hear Shanks’ emotion over Wales performance but he could have been even more cutting; well done for being balanced - must be the New York air. As to England an interesting conversation on EJ and England. Again England over achieve and after 17 Assistants and however...Read full review »

Pointless
SteveRhysWhite via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/19/22
I like Flats and Shanks as personalities, and their right knowledge is unquestionable - but it routinely takes over 20 minutes in each episode before they even start talking about rugby; lots of banter and dry comedy, and far too many adverts, not nearly enough rugby talk…
LittleSpaceman via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/15/22
He’s even better than Graham. I say this having watched Freeman in a Christmas movie 15 times being incredibly lovable teacher. I actually think Freeman was playing himself as that primary school teacher that’s how convincing he was. Then to Responder. Top Pod views boyos.
SmokinJoey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/14/22
Yellowstone a good series to watch chaps.
Chris2012fox via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/14/22
That’s all x
RossDon12 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/06/22
Podcast is brilliant love it but Shanks you mumble quite a lot. Your voice level starts off fine but peters off to a whisper half way through so I have to turn the volume up then Flats speaks and my ears a bleeding.
lfc.red via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/04/22
In-depth, forensic technical analysis of rugby is something you won’t get here; There are plenty of rugby podcasts that cover that stuff. Nope, you get one suburban early 40s dad (his words) who probably owns a pair of red chinos, and the other bloke (soon to be replaced by Topsy Ojo) who owns a...Read full review »

Two ex players now living in their media world. Cosseted and pampered “players” … gabbies coats . What are you talking about David ?
najfxvjhk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/22
Jet
This pod is as good as Jet from Gladiators hosting a millennium barn dance at Yeovil aerodrome. Properly policed. It would not, I repeat not, turn into an all-night rave though.
Jimef Newport via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/01/22
Listened for a few years and look forward to listening every week, love it 👍
JackFerris96 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/31/22
Love this pod, although would love it even more if they spoke 50% less about food . Regardless, five star review for two funny and Charming lads!
Jon Turko via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/25/22
Huge fan of the pod, often turn to it in turbulent times. A real life saver. The familiarity of both your voices is a place of solace which I’d be lost without. Loved the bbc slammed series which shanks features in brilliantly. Like Gats, didn’t see how he managed to acquire 50 caps. But watching...Read full review »
