DUBLIN/NYC – As Nations announce their Rugby World Cup rosters, gasps and cries of wrong-doing are coming from all corners of the globe and even from big-wigs like Agustín Pichot. In this Week 106 installment of our @RugbyWrapUp studio show, fiery Irishman George Hook (in Dublin) and pragmatic American Matt McCarthy (NYC) go head to head in a feisty look at:
–Devin Toner’s Omission for a South African
–Brian O’Driscoll Stance
–Rassie Erasmus better than Warren Gatland, Joe Schmidt and Steve Hanson?
–Welsh Front Row Woes
–Scotland’s Lone Bright Spot?
–Rory Best the new Willie-John McBride?
–Agustín Pichot’s Ire over Internationals (and his Tweet-Gate with us!)
And Don’t Miss…
TOKYO, JAPAN – It’s not every day you get to go to the Rugby World Cup HQ in Tokyo AND interview the person running the whole shebang. But guess what? We did. General Manager Rob Abernethy took time out from an understandably busy schedule to talk #RWC2019 with our Matt McCarthy, who was there scouting courtesy of John Lane’s USA Eagle Tours. And a big THANKS to Ryan Ginty of Next Level Rugby for traveling all the way over there to shoot the interview!
And be sure to check out….
The All Blacks have a rich and storied history, chock full of tales and heroes and a seemingly endless supply of characters. Jamie Wall taps into that history with a look at the brothers to wear the silver fern on their chest; siblings that have played for – and impacted – the world’s greatest rugby team from its inception. And as you’d probably guessed, there is one great yarn after the next. From the Warbricks to the Meads, right up to the Barretts, this is a true page-turner for all rugby fans. Better still, the ride includes a myriad of firsts and precursors/origins of things we take for granted in the modern game…This Week 103 installment of our Fantasy Sports Network show with Matt McCarthy and Mr. Wall gives you a glimpse and will likely leave you wanting more.
