Podcast: Episode 109 – Talk Of The Toony (Bookclub)

In the first of our lockdown bookclub episodes, Cammy and Iain take a look back at Gregor Townsend’s 2007 autobiography, Talk Of The Toony. The book is a very candid loopback at Townsend’s playing career and he certainly doesn’t hold back in his criticism of the SRU at the time and some of his former team mates and coaches.

If you have suggestions for books we should cover in future bookclub episodes then let us know. We’ll try to give some notice of what we intend to read to give you a chance to read it in advance so keep and eye on our social media channels.

Next week we’re doing a podcast where we put together a wish list of changes we’d make to rugby. This could be changes to the laws, changes to competition formats or development pathways. We’re not putting any limits on it so get in touch with your suggestions.
