The podcast returns with a bumper Silver Saturday special. We speak to a finalist from each of the Plate, Bowl and Cup games to find out about their clubs and who to watch out for at Murrayfield this weekend. We caught up with the women and men of Oban Lorne, Watsonians, Glasgow University, Melrose, Ross Sutherland and Carrick to get a glimpse into their preparations for the big day.
Also on the podcast this week we speak to Glasgow Warriors cult favourite Callum Gibbins to find out how he’s found his first season in the Pro 14 and what he makes of the Scottish music scene.
Cammy and Iain also catch up on the latest contract merry go round at Glasgow and Edinburgh and draw some worrying conclusions about Gregor Townsends links with Pep Guardiola. The guys also chat about the 1872 Cup and devise a suitable punishment for a traitor in the ranks.

We’re no longer putting the full podcast on our Youtube channel. However we will be putting up excerpts from the podcast such as interviews and other clips a week after the podcast is published. The Youtube channel also features all of our jingles and some previous episodes https://www.youtube.com/user/ScottishRugbyBlog
We’re also looking for our listeners to get involved in the comments on this page and elsewhere on the blog:
“Comment of the week” – We’ll be picking out our favourite comments from articles across the blog. Apologies that we didn’t pick any this week but we didn’t have time.
“Hands in the ruck” – What’s had it’s hands in your ruck? Let us know in the comments and we’ll pick out the best ones.
“Where’s Dougie Donnelly?” – It’s now mandatory to have a rumours section in a rugby podcast (apparently) so we’re looking for yours as well as news of any Scottish sporting media personalities you’ve spotted out and about. Have you seen Dougie Vipond down Tesco? Has your uncle’s brother’s aunt’s friend heard from someone down the pub that Jonny Gray is getting a new fence put in? Has your plumber been doing some work round Murrayfield and seen Richard Cockerill taking delivery of a new yoga mat? If so then let us know.
If you want to get in touch you can e-mail us on podcast[at]scottishrugbyblog.co.uk, catch us on Twitter @ScotRugbyBlog or @CammyBlack or you can leave a comment below and we’ll pick it up there.
The next podcast will be available towards the end of May and we’ll then be putting out more regular podcasts during Scotland’s summer tour.
