EP97: NOLA Gold Win 4th of July Ft Beaudein Waaka
Listen now
With the week that celebrated both Canada Day and the United States Independence Day, North American Rugby fans were treated to some epic Rugby over the weekend. NOLA Gold has transformed itself from struggling mid-season to winning games when it almost doesn't make sense. But if you asked the Gold, they have built a sense of belief within themselves. This belief has allowed them to thrive in adverse conditions. Dan and Pete break down the week that was and look ahead to week 17. Beaudein Waaka has played all along the backline when the Free Jacks have needed him, but in the second half of the season he has returned to his roots at Fly-Half. Pete sits down with Beaudein to talk about his season and his performance in Round 16. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
