This week Cammy and John dissect Gregor Townsend’s extended World Cup Training Squad, wonder what might have been if Big Vern had remained in charge and float rumours of a World Cup bolter.
We also get out hands in the ruck about a lack of any official announcement or tribute for Ross Ford following his quiet retirement from rugby and make plans for our own tribute in next week’s podcast with a unique opportunity for listeners to get involved.
The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Acast, Spotify, TuneIn and Audioboom as well as anywhere else that will let you subscribe through an rss feed. You can also just listen through this webpage using your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device.

We’re also looking for our listeners to get involved 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.
“Absolute Bobbins” – Have you or anyone you know got a seemingly ridiculous opinion on something rugby related? Let us know and we will happily sit in judgement.
“Crap call offs” – Send us your crap reasons for teammates and players for not coming to training or calling off before a game.
“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.
