The Wanna Ruck Podcast Episode 17
So the dreaded lergie has infiltrated the Wanna Ruck Camp. Sorry for the delay in this podcast but we pushed through to get it out. This week we focus back on the Premiership fixtures: Leicester v Northampton Saracens v Harlequins Newcastle v Sale Jamie lets us know what the Olympic Stadium is like as he was actually at the Sarries match. There is a small discussion on a proposed law change gleaned from Northern Touch which Doc is disgusted about. The idea of picking England players from the Championship is muted, presumable to stop the exodus from Leicester just in case they go down. Have a listen, and please share. Crouch! Bind! Set!

The Wanna Ruck Podcast Episode 16
I can't believe we did this but we cover the final round of the 6 Nations but wishing we were watching the Premiership Rugby Cup Final. We brush over Italy v France, show disappointment with the Irish in Wales v Ireland and all our despair comes flowing out at England v Scotland. We just about get it up to pick our XV for the tournament. Jamie has some light hearted news that tries to lift the spirits of the room, literally. Doc crows big and loud on winning the 6 Nations Fantasy league and keeping the "trophy". Sure this will be brought up again in the future. Have a listen, enjoy and share. Crouch! Bind! Set!

The Wanna Ruck Podcast Episode 15
So round 4 of the 6 Nations. We show our disappointment with France not managing to get it up. Scotland, so close but no cigar and England - Italy, was there any point. Jamie upsets the Irish and Doc slags off one of our French listeners. There is also a quick look at the Nations Championship, another crappy initiative by the IRB. When will they learn that it's all good as it is apart from Italy. Oh and Doc is still smug sitting pretty on top of the fantasy table, can anyone wipe the smile off his face. Have a listen, spread the word and let us know what you think. Crouch! Bind! Set!
