Podcast 311 – Squads & Silverware

Squads out!

The Green and Gold Rugby Show is back for another week, and with the Bledisloe II result, the Wallabies Rugby World Cup Squad announcement and the launch of the NRC, there was a lot to cover this week.

Hugh takes the reins as host of the show this week to cover the squads and silverware up for grabs around all these competitions, and was joined this week by producer Nick W and long time GAGR favourite, Brett McKay.

The Five Burning Questions:

1. What’s the most surprising part about the World Cup squad?
2. What is Cheika’s starting XV on this squad?
3. How far do we think they’ll get?
4. What are you most looking forward to about the NRC in 2019?
5. Which NRC team is looking the most dangerous?

      Imagine having a squad you could leave Laumape out of?!? the guy’s electric

      • Max Graham

        Naholo didn’t even make the shortlist! Crazy

        • Mart

          Mental. He should be there, instead of Reece. Don’t agree with his selection at all. form aside

    • Tah Tragic

      Angus bloody Ta’avao – he was crap at the Tahs, signs with the Chiefs and is now going to the WC. Great to see how the Tahs can get the most out of players.

    Apologies for the background noise at my end, gang. I have an over-zealous computer processor that seems to think running the fan at full speed all the time is the go.

    Great chat though, enjoyable as always and great to make another appearance..
