NOTE: Thanks to Jonny Lewis Films for more exceptional post-production work.
NEW YORK, NY – 2020 can kiss our [blanks] good-bye. No doubt that it’s apropos to end this [bleeping] year with a little irreverence… or a battle between the powers of Hope & Despair. With that, no foursome represents those respective outlooks better than Force of Nature Alex Corbisiero, Papist George Hook, Lapsed Fenian Steve Lewis and festively positive host Matt McCarthy. Watch/Listen as they look back at 2020, offer their hopes and bird-flips to the past 365, and argue their points re:
-An Improbable Event
-A Negative Occurrence
-A Positive Something (Steve may have won this one)
–Tweaks To Save The Game…
–Gift Under The Tree… for a fan or rugby personality.
Happy, Health, Merry Everything to you and yours! And thank you for your support in this poop year! Here’s to a great 2021!

Steve Lewis and Matt McCarthy steer the enlightening conversion that includes:
-[Allegedly] corrupt Prime Ministers doubling as Rugby Union Chairmen in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga
–Funds disappearing without players getting paid or equipment being purchased
–World Rugby laying blame on the doorsteps of the top rugby nations
-Purposely keeping the Pacific Island Nations at a disadvantage
