The Thistle Scottish Rugby Podcast
Welcome to The Thistle, the only podcast that cares about Scottish rugby. A light-hearted look at rugby union in Scotland, from three rugby fans who never quite made the grade. Expect razor sharp insight from a panel that can count amongst its achievements a Scottish Schools Cup winners medal, the captaincy of the Newcastle 2s dirt trackers, and second place at the 2016 Elie beach rugby tournament.

Good balance
Really enjoying the enthusiasm, the lively discussion and the willingness not to take themselves too seriously - I think this podcast has really upped its game recently. Look forward to each new episode.
