S4 Ep47: B&I Lions Squad; ECC Semi Finals and Eddie's England Newbies  

The boys are back and in high spirits this week after a feast of squad announcements and the outstanding Champions Cup and Challenge Cup semi-finals. We start at the quadrennial British and Irish squad selection before moving on to Eddie Jones' interesting England squad.

S4 Ep45: 10th April 2017 - LIONS SELECTION SPECIAL PART 2...THE BACKS.  

We try to recreate the tension and atmosphere of the Lions selection by selecting our back line. Who gets the nod? Will it be a 2013-esque plane full of Owen Farrell? Who are the nailed on men and who are the bolters? We lock the doors and don't let ourselves out until we agree. There's also a Lions quiz and a Raging Bull Tour Story that will make you yearn for the "good old days" of amateur Lions tours. Get it in your cauliflower ears!
