The end of season lunch
Ugo, Danny and Ashy head to Chris' for the last pod of the season and steak sandwiches. We get more insight into Ashy's red card hearing and Cadan Murley's role from Marbella. There's more Ford-Farrell debate and Premiership final reflections, plus plenty of love for Munster after they won the URC title. There's also World Cup predictions and some end of season awards too.
Sarries reign supreme
Saracens are Premiership champions for a sixth time after they edged Sale in an epic final at Twickenham. Chris is joined by Matt Dawson and Paul Grayson to reflect on a match that more than lived up to the hype. After defeat in last year's final and the salary cap scandal, might this be their sweetest title of all? The guys reflect on where the game slipped from Sale's grasp in the second-half and whether Alex Sanderson's side are primed to be at the top table of English rugby for years to come. And in the battle of the No.10s it was Owen Farrell who emerged victorious, but what impact will that have on Steve Borthwick's England selection for the World Cup?
Ford or Farrell?
Chris, Ugo and Ashy look ahead to the Premiership final at Twickenham. Who would make your combined Saracens and Sale XV? Would you have George Ford or Owen Farrell at fly-half? The guys pick their team and discuss the merits of the two England playmakers. Sale's Gus Warr joins the pod and we find out what Ashy was like as a team-mate, the importance of finger tape and what he's learnt from Sir Alex Ferguson. We also preview the URC final and Ashy talks about how he's finding retirement.
La ROGelle go back-to-back
Chris and Paul Grayson bring you reaction from Dublin as La Rochelle stun Leinster (again) to win the Champions Cup. Hear from Ronan O'Gara after another titanic tussle between the two teams in a final and his thoughts on the prospect of coaching Ireland. But where did it go wrong for Leinster after they raced into a 17-0 lead after 12 minutes? Leo Cullen joins the pod to explain. We also reflect on the Challenge Cup final after Toulon outclassed Glasgow, and the surprise retirement of Alun Wyn Jones.
Semi-finals weekend and the Prince of Paris
Chris and Ugo dissect a big weekend of semi-finals in the Premiership and URC. Sale reached their first Premiership final in 17 years and face serial finalists Saracens. It means for the second successive year it will be Ford v Farrell in the big dance at Twickenham. There was a big shock in the URC as Munster toppled Leinster thanks to Jack Crowley's late drop goal. How will this impact Leinster heading into this weekend's Champions Cup final. And our special guest this week is Sergio Parisse who talks Italy, World Cups, leadership and life in Toulon ahead of their meeting with Glasgow in the Challenge Cup final.
