Reinach's Wine racks
If the owner of your Rugby club were to go into business with one of your players what would it be called? tell us on twitter with the #RugbyBusiness This week we've got a bumper pod with 2 subjects dominating the conversation. 1 - We talk about the #RWC19 final, our thoughts on the performance of both teams, Garces, Skeen etc. We get an excellent insight into how the cameras are set up and footage provided to the TMO by our very own Lensman and we get into where/what England need to do moving forward. 2 - Apparently a team has breached the salary cap and is being punished. We all have some opinions on the legality, PRL loopholes and if other teams should be worried about their own dealings. We welcome back the Lensman as well as James from Rugby Saracens and Ali Stokes in what promises to be one hell of an episode. Go well
November 06, 2019
