Podcast Ep 176: Rugby World Cup 2015 Podcast – Nick Farr-Jones

So here we arrive at another Green and Gold Rugby podcast, Episode 176 as it stands. More significantly it is the next in our series of Rugby World Cup 2015 Podcasts featuring Wallaby World Champions and tonight we have the man who you could say started it all. The image of Nick Farr-Jones holding aloft William Web-Ellis, having received it on the steps of Twickenham back in 1991, is such an iconic image in Australian Rugby. It would not be a Rugby World Cup 2015 Podcast series without a chance to chat with the man who first held aloft the World Cup as a Wallaby World Champion.

For all rugby fans, this is a must listen as Farr-Jones takes us through his memories of 1987 (not so good) and 1991 (much better). There are eye-opening discoveries and important learnings. From 1991 we travel to the current day and get Nick’s opinions on our chances this year and what his biggest concern is challenging the Wallaby’s likelihood of securing a record third crown. As for who he thinks should be the Wallaby scrumhalves on tour? Well that’s one for you to find out yourself.

Once Nick departs, the podcast continues with Sully and Steve joining me to discuss Super Rugby and, with an entertaining cameo from Hugh Cavill, discuss the burning questions of the week. We’ve listed them below, you’ve listened to our thoughts now time to give yours in the comments below.

  • Does the Reds’ win help or hinder Richard Graham’s hopes for reappointment?
  • What do we make of Naiyaravoro’s apparent signing for Glasgow? Is he a money-chasing mercenary or is this his best option for rugby development?
  • Is it time to do away with the TMO and just back the on-field referee to make the call?

I truly hope you enjoy this listen as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Next week we move into the forwards, where the World Cups are really one, and begin with the backrow. It is sure to be another Rugby World Cup 2015 Podcast not to be missed.

    NFJ – “Campo was a unique person….” What’s this was bit? He still is.

    NFJ – Stirzaker – I am glad I am not the only ‘mad’ one…..

    Reg – “Abandoned us like Waratah wingers”

    Just re the Reds – The thing is that every team that plays the Rebels should know that if you hang on to the ball you will score. Not sure why the Reds might have been trying to find anything else. As Sully mentioned they played 30mins of footy – Just think if we can put together 80……

    Great cast boys. I keep getting in trouble for giggling at work.

    Really enjoying the RWC series Reg. Keep it up.
