Henry Slade – New Orleans – Loughborough Lightning – Liverpool St Helens – John Dawes – Brad Barritt – Russell Earnshaw & John Fletcher – Heather Fisher – Ampthill – Welsh women’s rugby – Auld Enemy
We ask a fully suited Henry Slade to take a stroll into the River Exe, as he talks about growing up in Devon, how golf compares with rugby, Eddie Jones’s straight talking methods, and how he was brought to tears by a county coach.
We visit New Orleans to sample Mardi Gras and discover how they set up a table-topping rugby side in just two years.
We meet Sarah Hunter, Emily Scarratt and Katy Daley-Mclean and the entire Loughborough Lightning team as we go behind the scenes for their crunch game against Saracens.
We welcomed Mat Tait to Rugby’s offices on the day he retired where he gave us chapter and verse on his life and times.
We met up with Ray French and the people who keep Liverpool St Helens running on their final home game of the season
We look back on the playing and coaching careers of Russell Earnshaw and John Fletcher and find out what they’re up to now.
We find Ampthill on the map and tell their incredible story that encompasses Catherine of Aragon, The Golden Hare, a legion of Tongan rugby players and former Dragons, Sale, Harlequins and Saracens coach Paul Turner.
We learn an awful lot about bobsleigh from Heather Fisher while hearing how she’s battled anorexia, alopecia and severe burn out, in her fight to be an elite athlete.
We start to use coffee as a slug repellent after visiting Brad Barritt at his company headquarters.
We meet London Welsh, Wales and Lions John Dawes and Geoff Evans to find out about how the ‘Welsh way’ was shaped in the 60s and 70s.
We spend an evening with the legends of English and Scottish rugby at the Auld Enemy dinner
