Podcast: Episode 118 – Stellar Journeyman


On this week’s podcast we discuss the appointment of John Dalziel as Scotland forwards coach and look at who else might have been in contention. We also discuss mental health in rugby in the wake of Matt Smith’s revalations on Rugby Pass and ask whether Scottish rugby needs to do better when it comes to player’s mental welfare. Elsewhere discover why Kelly Brown might have looked jolly on Portobello prom and get our hands in the ruck over Finlay Christie, Big Chief and premature Lions Chat.
