Podcast: Episode 90 – OK Boomer

This week Cammy and Iain wade through the tsunami of Scottish rugby news from Scotland’s expression of regret to Dave Rennie’s appointment as Australia’s Head Coach.

We also look back at Glasgow and Edinburgh’s European games as well as the Scottish Women’s defeat to Wales. We look ahead to the Women’s game against Japan at the weekend and get our hands in the ruck about some after dinner speeches.

      Stage 4 bowel cancer which has spread to his brain and liver.
      A nightmare diagnosis. Poor man’s only 48, and was genuinely living the dream in some respects; two bairns away to Uni and another starting secondary school, plus a dream house in France.

      Tom Smith is perhaps the greatest prop Scotland has ever produced, I’d say he is…a true legend of the game, a stalwart of two Lions tours, and a member of that golden 1999 side.

      Good luck Tom. He’ll be fighting this hard.

    I remember roaring like a wounded Buffalo in the stands in Sydney 2003 as Tom Smith scored the winning try v Fiji, great memories. Hope you beat it & make a full recovery Tom

      Just listening to Tom now on Radio 5 Live. Modesty, humility, concern for his family and courage all shine through. Really hope he beats it.
      Good luck, Tom.

    I’ll never forget Tom Smiths first Calcutta cup down south in the first half where he upended an opposition player. Any one else out there remember it. It made my heart proud thinking wow finally someone to take over David Sole’s passion! On a personal note I will for ever want to apologise to Tom for shaking his hand too hard after the 2000 Calcutta cup game with joy and excitement. Tom shouted ‘you Wan*1er ‘ whilst his mum and dad were also present. I got home watched the re-run and realised Tom had his hand badly injured but carried on with determination and spirtit . He was and will always be a hero of mine – thank you Tom!!!!!

    John Barclay has retired from international rugby.

    A legend and Scottish stalwart who started out with Beattie and Brown – and battled through to have a massive career renaissance which climaxed with him leading the team to an awe-inspiring Calcutta Cup win as well as an unforgettable performance against Australia. Seeing him plunge over the tryline at Murrayfield and roaring with triumph…incredible. I don’t think anybody could begrudge him that score, nor could they his dummy (!!!) and try against Russia in Japan.

    Good luck to him post-retirement. A colossus whose retirement opens up space for Ritchie, Bradbury etc

      Only problem is that he went to Dollar Academy …….. lol. Seriously though, he was a good player/captain for Scotland and hope he has a good retirement

      Great player, it’s a shame to see him retire from Scotland , he wasn’t in my ideal back row anymore but how often do you get to choose that and would only be one or two injuries away from the starting team. I hoped he would be part of the 6N. Really hope the head knock he got against Bordeaux wasn’t an influence on this decision.
      On the plus side he could be very handy for Edinburgh over the rest of the season.
      If he did manage to get back to near his best it would be very hard to see him not in the Scotland team.

    I see that Ireland have published their WC performance review. Did I miss the Scottish review or has it not been done? Anyone know of it?
