Once great Podcast going downhill fast
There are very few quality serious rugby podcasts out there. Most seem to prefer taking the route of using ex-players and trying to be funny, cool or matey. They try and entertain rather than inform and without exception, they fail dismally. The Ruck was one of the last serious rugby comment podcasts as befits it coming from the Times. Unfortunately it is gradually but definitely sliding downhill fast. The team appear to have come to the conclusion that they are funny and that people are interested in what they eat or drink and their general banter (you can be sure we’re not and it’s a total cringe to listen to!). Today’s Lions offering was 30 minutes and the first 6 minutes were spent talking s### to each other. Maybe you are gathering more listeners with this content but this one is listening less and less and is about to unsubscribe (will stick with Brian Moore and the like). Please guys, like the Springboks, go back to what you’re good at...serious informed rugby commentary and opinion..

I've been listening to this pod for a year or so. Stephen Jones hates Eddie Jones to the extent he can barely spit out his comptempt. Every week he says how England are doomed and EJ doesn't know what he's doing and every week he's proved wrong but he never learns to keep his...Read full review »
