Podcast: Episode 66 – BRFC 4 LIFE

The podcast returns after a short break and Cammy and Iain look ahead to the weekend’s big game with Berwick  Rugby Club looking to go unbeaten all season and claim a famous League and Shield double. Elsewhere we lookahead to the 1872 Cup and work out all the various possible outcomes including an indepth look at the Pro 14 tie break criteria. Dougie Donnelly is finally spotted and we discuss ecumenical matters pertaining to comments made by Israel Folau, Billy Vunipola and Stephen Jones. Oh yeah… and Cammy’s bringing back ALL the jingles including an early appearance for Lions Chat with news that Warren Gatland looks set to take charge for another tour in 2021.

    Do yous think Israels removal was the right thing to do ? or perhaps a fine or season ban more appropriate? or perhaps no ban at all?

      Do we really need to discuss this further? It’s been dominating rugby discussions for the last couple of weeks and the podcast just wasted 20 minutes talking about it, adding nothing to the debate. When you’re spending a quarter of your rugby podcast discussing the opinions of the likes of Vunipola and Folau, you’re doing it wrong.

        Hi TeamCam. Thanks for the feedback. We only covered it because people had asked and because events at the weekend made it relevant again. If that hadn’t happened we probably wouldn’t have discussed it at all. We also put it in hands in the ruck as that’s our catch all any other business section and as it’s at the end people can always switch off knowing they’re not missing anything if they don’t want to persevere. Thanks for listening.

        That’s absolutely fair. I’m probably in the minority in that I’m just sick of the whole story and the amount of coverage it’s gotten! To be fair I’m also sick of Gatland as Lions coach…

    Is there any chance of ‘like’ and ‘dislike’ icons on the blog, just to see how popular or unpopular a comment is? Think it would make it more interesting.

  4. Referendum on

    There was a hole in my soul that was filled by the reintroduction of the jingles. Thank you. They did sound better too so you’ve got the sound sorted for them too which is great. No excuse not to keep them in. ;-)

    I also loved the outro and I did listen to it all. It was glorious. I felt this (although it did fill a lot of this episode) was the best analysis I’ve heard on the whole debacle. It was reasoned and fair and didn’t go down the road of bullying tones that so many have, which puts those in a terrible double standard stance against something folks clearly have a huge issue with.

    Just to correct some of the facts, the verse quoted was from the new testament not Leviticus as you had said. 1 Corinthians 6 I think. The Islamic view seemed mixed but it often promotes a death sentence. But as I said you were fair, reasoned and helpful in your response to this. Hopefully it won’t come to be discussed again but I fear it will.
