S3 Ep36: Horgan’s Heartbreak & The Massie-Taylor Take
🛳️ Join us on the GBR Cruise: http://infinitysportstravel.com/gbr 🛳️ Payno and Tins are joined by a heartbroken Shane Horgan as his Leinster fell at the final hurdle again in defeat to La Rochelle on home soil. Payno declares that Ronan O’Gara is living rent free in D4 and Shane tells a touching story of some La Rochelle/ROG fans in the stands. While Ronan might be the most sought after coach in the world right now… the question is, where will his next move be to? We’re also joined in the studio by the Premiership trophy & its CEO Simon Massie-Taylor to take stock of the season that was and find out what might be in store this weekend and beyond.
S3 Ep35: Sun, sea, sand and lots of rosé - Ibiza baby!
🛳️ Join us on the GBR Cruise: http://infinitysportstravel.com/gbr 🛳️
The boys are on tour, well sort of! Tins, Hask and Payno are let loose atop the Me Hotel in Ibiza… stunning views, beautiful sun and free-flowing rosé - what could go wrong? Well a lot actually, with Hask going out of his way to insult 11 different people in rugby (that’s our count anyway) which includes a diabolical Lawrence Dallaglio impression. Tins teases with some Coronation tales and we get a reappearance of “Japan Alex” as he tries to get the other two to join in with his “10 ways to make rugby better”. Amongst all that the guys also talk European and Premiership Rugby finals.
S3 Ep34: The Fantastic Mr Fox
Payno and Hask are joined by Jason 'Foxy' Fox to talk about joining the Marines as a 16-year old and then into the special forces, his struggles after his honourable discharge and how he got to be everyone's favourite instructor on SAS: Who Dares Wins. Foxy tells of Ben Foden impressing in the UK version of the show and of Sam Burgess's amazing escape in the Australian version. We also hear an incredible story of Foxy meeting the Cartel and the Mexican marines - none of us barely took a breath! Oh, and if that wasn't enough we find out the only celebrity that thankfully made Hask speechless!
This episode does touch on some personal subjects, notably when Jason contemplated taking his own life. If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, you can contact Samaritans 24hrs a day, 365 days a year. Call 116 123 (free from any phone) or email [email protected]
S3 Ep33: Rugby from a War Zone
Payno and Hask are joined by the current Ukrainian national team’s team manager Maksym Kravchenko and their scrum-half Vadym Sivak who are both in Ukraine and fly-half Anton Shashero who’s in Georgia to talk about their experiences since Russia invaded in February 2022. Makysm and Vadym recall what life was like when those first sirens sounded and Anton tells of his anguish of watching it all from afar. They talk about their recent games in the 3rd tier of European rugby and, not just their hopes for the sport in the country and on the international stage, but also Ukraine’s continuing fight for freedom. Amongst all of that Hask also makes one of the greatest faux pas of all time - of course he does!
S3 Ep32: The Young Guns: Henry Arundell & Ben White
London Irish duo Henry Arundell & Ben White join Hask and Payno to chat about their careers and their meteoric rise from schoolboys; going into great detail about some ‘interesting’ living conditions in their academy days! Known by many for two incredible tries that went viral, Henry reveals who’s taken him under their wing in England camp and it's not who you think it might be… And, Ben spills the beans on his move from Leicester to the Exiles as well as his unexpected Scotland call-up and his on-field relationship with Finn Russell. Payno also does his best mockney Hask impression and the Hoff responds with a tale of a hot-tub encounter with an Irish legend in Vegas! It makes little sense to us, too. 🛳️ Join us on the GBR Cruise: http://infinitysportstravel.com/gbr 🛳️
