Sing again lads and I’m off the Good the bad and the rugby 🤣

Great to see Ashy bringing Jonesy down a peg or two - mentioning Deliveroo as a side hustle to a public school boy who commentates on the rugby and the rowing was genius!!!!!

As this is so loved why isn’t it done weekly to go over the URC ?

BBC need to bore off with there insufferable ads at the start of each episode.

Please ask Katy Daly-McLean to join you. Excellent on Rugby Special

Chris seems an excitable chap.. which is fine, but maybe a little more structure to the questions.. they seem a touch long winded.. less is more said Ritchie Benaud..

Really getting fed up with this. Take a lesson from Lineker, Shearer etc. on being clinical and brief, and fair.

You have to move Ugo out, he is just dreadful, no real insight, still talking about himself and now he’s talking football on a rugby podcast, dreadful - move Monya on please.

Been a listener for the last 4 years. But in recent months i have found myself stopping podcasts halfway through and deleting them as they’re just drivel and often opinions that seem to be said to be controversial or difficult, Ugo i’m looking at you. Also Ugo comes across as being very much in...Read full review »

By far the best podcast about rugby. A great combination of fun and banter, but really high quality analysis on every pod, by people who played at the highest level. Matt Dawson’s appreciation for great play transcends nationality and his love of the game reminds me of Bill McLaren.

Monye is awful as is the Welsh guy, I think his name is Grope.
stevealmost via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/21/24
Can we have more Chris Ashton, Danny Care and less the other podcasters. Ugo is so boring. The other speakers are pointless too. In fact let’s just have care and ashton please.

Nobody can disagree with entitled Ugo without generating a disingenuous ‘what!?’ Or a ‘how can you say that?!’ Or ‘are you serious?!’ How dare anyone challenge Ugo. I was in a minibus with 15 rugby players. Every single one shouted to turn off the Rugby Union Daily because of Ugo and his...Read full review »

GroTom rock … very emotional, funny and can laugh at themselves. I always have a laugh out loud while listening to good ruby chat about teams other than England.

A brilliant listen & great insights into the elite game. Provides exactly what is missing from the Netflix series. Time to up your game Netflix you need to speak to these guys!
AgingAthlete via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/07/24
Overall I’m a big fan and the balance of serious informed analysis, knowledgeable and current players, banter and fun is very well managed. As one other review said, Ugo’s fake laugh is becoming quite annoying. It comes across as seriously passive aggressive . I’m sure it isn’t meant that way but...Read full review »

Like others I very much enjoy this podcast. Juxtaposition of humour, opinions and diverse commercial interests works so well. Best wishes to you all Richard
RWRaffles via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/27/24
There are other teams and unions to talk about in the uk. It’s getting a bit embarrassing now the amount of talk England get. Please can we have a mix and include talk About the URC, should be 50/50 content between Prem and the URC not 98/2!!
Webster007andrew via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/17/24
In the same way most of us don’t like trans-women in the women’s game, please can we keep female journalists and commentators away from the men’s game. Having never played a minute of the men’s game they just don’t have the insight. Equally, the majority of people tune into this pod to catch up...Read full review »

Have always enjoyed this pod, interesting, informed and fun without the banter taking the tedious “laddie” turn of some other rugby pods. But I have to say, the addition of Ashy as a regular has taken it to another level. His forthright opinions were expected (and welcomed) but who knew he was...Read full review »

I listen to the pod every week and really enjoy it. Love how the “Badger” maintains the line and constantly impressed by his rugby knowledge. Can’t believe how infectious Ugo’s laughter is and did you know he also commentates on ….. 😀 (stay on his case Chris !) Very impressed by Ashy’s efforts...Read full review »

Long time listener but please can Ugo dial down the fake OTT laugh…getting harder to tolerate
Johbrown via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/07/23
Fantastic pod. Even better during the world cup
andrewk1927 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/07/23
The host takes shots at Ireland. England played one real team this tournament. They lost. Ireland bet the same team. Make sure the draw wins your player of the tournament.
DOKeeffeIre via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 10/23/23
Great guests giving genuine insight but the journalist host loves the sound of his voice too much for me to give him five stars, he’s blathering on stating the obvious and talking over guests …..know your place!
DD 3000 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/22/23
I was unable to watch the quarterfinal matches this weekend and had recorded them, and assiduously avoided sports news so I could watch the games and experience the thrill of not knowing how it would turn out. Except that this podcast blares out the results in the headers. Can’t you do something...Read full review »

Enjoying most of the podcasts, but I find it heavily revolves around England. As for the top ten of World Cup coaches,I can’t believe that they put an eye doctor before Warren Gatland.
Smcnally72 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/12/23
Let’s call it for what it is and change the title. Love the insight of the whole team and the dynamic is great but coverage is so English rugby focused during the standard season and England heavy when it comes to the internationals. It’s improved slightly this World Cup but even then discussion...Read full review »

The pod is great, especially the variety but for the love of something holy please stop the football ads, 3 per episode!!! Such a shame as it takes away so much from the excellent and varied content.
Zylag7 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/21/23
I used to like this podcast but Dawson’s anti-charm combined with the group’s lazy parroting of opinions are dragging it down. Is it physically impossible for pundits to talk about Fiji without mentioning that they are “everybody’s second team”?
MDAS1988 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/20/23
Normally a great pod with quality presenters and guests, but it’s time for a change. Get rid of Ugo. He is becoming too patronising and self promoting and perhaps should have less red wine when he is working
Salty 34 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/17/23
Single-handedly crucified bbc cycling coverage during the 2019 Tour de France, and now let loose with his dour, unknowledgeable views on rugby. Did this bloke ever play rugby at any sort of decent level? And what is it exactly he has against the Scots? He was noticeably absent from the nations...Read full review »
Baggiboy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/17/23
Really love the insights of this pod with pundits close to the action.. the nations pod has potential to bring parity to Scotland, Ireland and wales as it is an England heavy show in general.. The Welsh correspondent is Uber dull and disrespectful in his opinionated remarks but thankfully that’s...Read full review »

Great pod today! Hilarious listening to Dawson trying the humility approach. Didn’t last long before proceeding to intricately detail how great they were (and they were). Great player he was undoubtedly was, but leave the humility at home, it’s one thing he can’t carry!
Splodge Buzzard via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/14/23
Surprise surprise welshman Gareth Rhys Owen slags off England v Argentina game. Shocker! It took irish/scotsman Tom English to add a balanced opinion. 14 men so meant result only, end of. If they’d had 15 men i’d have been appalled.
D-sgrace via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/13/23
The BBC should be embarrassed. The pro English / anti other ‘home nations’ is in full effect. Label it as an English rugby podcast and we’d all have more sympathy for their cheerleading.
'BlueMonkey' via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/11/23
Last episode was meant to be a review on the home nations at the World Cup. First but they talk Fiji up for 15 minutes and Dismiss Wales despite Wales winning. They spend the next 10 minutes being kinder to Scotland despite them loosing. Then talk about England as of they are on their way to win...Read full review »

Hi - really enjoying the show- even more so as I’m laid up following knee surgery. Shame it’s coincided with the World Cup! 😂 Even though not much to look forward to on the pitch from an England perspective- I’m looking forward to every episode with you guys….

Poor Bryan Habana being bullied by two biased English pundits
SA1990000 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/03/23
Considering the line up. Felt embarrassed FOR Brian being associated with this drivel. Matt Dawson will forever be a World Cup hero but an embarrassment every time he opens his mouth. Sorry guys but an awful podcast…the only saving grace is Ugo not there … phew !
Pete riggers via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/23
