GAGR Podcast Ep 171: RWC Legends Series with Matthew Burke

We’ve got Rugby World Cup 2015 fever here at Green and Gold Rugby and with less than six months to go until the tournament kicks off, it’s time to start looking ahead. In the first of our 2015 Rugby World Cup Podcast Legends Series we have 1999 World Cup winning fullback Matthew Burke on the show. Burke looks back at the 99 World Cup and how the Wallabies won William Web Ellis before looking forward to this year’s tournament and provides his thoughts as to whether we can do it again.

Dave Jefferson (aka Cyclopath) then joins us for the first time this year as we spend a bit of time looking back at Round 7 of Super Rugby and previewing Round 8. It’s also another chance to dust off Hugh Cavill’s patented ‘5 burning questions’ series.

Have a listen to our special 2015 Rugby World Cup Podcast, let us know what you thought of Burkie and have a crack at answering the 5 burning questions yourself in the comment section below.

  • Mitch T Gray

    Very entertaining PodCast…

  • Dally M

    Great interview with Matty Burke. He can come across as a d*ck with some of the articles he writes, but he always seems genuine and good interviewee in person.

    • John Tynan

      I reckon he can blame his editors for some of the rep stuff via wanker headlines they put on his articles.

      • Georgina

        He did say that fans aren’t qualified to understand what happens in Super Rugby because they haven’t played it. Which had his fellow Rugby Heaven journalists looking nervously towards their own copy.

  • Mart

    Solid podcast guys, Burkey was great

  • Billl

    Trevor Brennan was selected for one job in mind. He failed. At Kefu’s hands’. Who wouldn’t have had to…the aussies gave enough leeway to the ref to step in, he didn’t, they did. Job done.

  • Billl

    That 99 SA vs AUS semi game. Still one of the greatest 80+ efforts I’ve ever seen. From both sides. It wouldn’t mean anything without both sides.


The original prop in a prop's body, but thankfully I have the rugby mind of a prop as well.
