This week on the podcast we’re joined by Alan Dymock from Rugby World Magazine and Nicks Johnson to look at the future of rugby given the ongoing global crisis surrounding coronavirus.
Will the 19/20 season be completed? Will the Lions tour to South Africa go ahead? Did the SRU jump the gun in cancelling the domestic season? Can rugby weather the current economic uncertainty and who will come out on top in the battle for World Rugby’s top job?
We take a close look at Gus Pichot and Bill Beaumont’s bid for the World Rugby presidency and wonder if things might be closer than first anticipated.
There’s obviously a lot of coronavirus related chat in this episode so if you’re trying to avoid news around this issue to protect your mental wellbeing then you may want to skip this one. We’ll be back with some more nostalgia and silliness in our forthcoming episodes.
