This week Cammy is joined by Iain Hay and Rugby World Features Editor Alan Dymock to look at recreational drug use in sport, re-evaluate Ross Ford’s career and wonder just how large a part proximity to Hawick will play in where Stuart Hogg will end up next season. Cammy also chats to Premier Sports’ Rory Hamilton about their Pro 14 coverage, whether Sean Holley is likely to get his guitar out whilst co-commentating and how he tells Stuart Hogg and Nick Grigg apart. We also have some exclusive news about Shug Blake!

We’re also looking for our listeners to get involved with the podcast in the comments on this page and elsewhere on the blog:
“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.
“Absolute Bobbins” – Have you fallen out with a friend over their ludicrous opinions about something Scottish rugby related? Do they think Hogg should play 10? Do they think Frank Hadden was ahead of his time? Drop us a line and we’ll happily sit in judgement.
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.
