NEW YORK, NY – Some say it is better to give than receive, particularly around the holidays. But oh by gosh by golly, we loved receiving the gift of Mathieu Bastareaud sitting for our Week #120 show, live from the Pig N Whistle on W36th Street. Mathieu, French actor and restaurateur Pascal Escriout and our Mathieu, Matt McCarthy, cover a wide range of topics including questions from Bryan Ray of Americas Rugby News, Paul Bains of Driving Maul and James Harrington of James On Rugby. Topics include:
-Leaving Toulon for Rugby United NY
–Perspective after the birth of his son
-His #RWC2019 Omission from Les Bleus – the French National Team; How it felt and how he found out.
–Playing #8 or #12
-Living in NYC
–Mr. Bean vs Jerry Lewis
-Remaining career goals
