BANG AVERAGE CHAT THAT YOU won’t want to END.
I can only see downloads, so if you're going to listen, please can you download the episode. I'll love you forever!
After a mental few months in Welsh Rugby, it was an interesting chat with the Scarlets Regional boss. He lifts the lid on the last few weeks and talks about what they need for the future, for both the Scarlets, and the WRU…
Jamie Jones-Buchanan Pt2
We tried to chat Rugby League, but like the first pod we did, the convo went off on a tangent again, albeit relevant in today’s society. Rugby League or not, he’s just a bloody good bloke!
A quality career in Super Rugby, playing for the All Blacks, and then gracing Cardiff, Munster and Paris with Racing 92. Plenty of wins, a few lows, and carving a career now in Real Estate too.
Great to catch up with Skelt’s after La Rochelle’s recent success. Pretty much everywhere he goes, cups follow! Interesting to hear him talk about growing up in NZ and Australia, and his journey across the northern hemisphere too
Sean has won it all on the pitch, and done it all off the pitch. If you know Rugby League, you’ll know Longy. Since retiring he’s been earning his trade as a No2, but now has the Head Coach job at Featherstone. St Helens Legend. GB and England. The wildest of highs and some serious lows.
Fresh off Scotland winning another game vs England Rugby, I caught up with Sean who was back at the team hotel. Class win for them, and great to chat about all things Scotland, Lions, & the Baa Baa’s. On the club stage he has won it all with Saracens, London Irish, Glasgow and in NZ with Canterbury and the Crusaders.

It’s not everyday you sit down with one of the best players to grace the Premier League. Whilst never properly getting his opportunities for England, he was the first midfielder to enter the Premier League 100 Club, and was an anomaly in being a 1 club man at Southampton.
What a bloke. We spoke a lot about what he is up to since hanging up the boots. His purpose post playing. His vision, values and morals. They type of blokes he’s built a career around, and what they have taught him over the years.
Jason only retired in the summer and is now playing amateur rugby, but he had so many questions come up on our Instagram and twitter, we thought we would use those as the basis to form our convo. Insightful, no holds barred, both scathing and funny at times – Here’s a lad that’s seen it all in Welsh Club Rugby
What a mental chat with Dave. A career in the military. Over 10 tours in hostile environments, being shot at and blown up. Paratrooper and Special Forces. PTSD and Personality Disorder. Multiple suicide attempts. And now a new career, a family, and a life left behind.
What a grounded and top bloke Will is. He didn’t take the normal route in to football, instead grafting, going to Uni, working, and playing in the Welsh Prem. Then came that Wales vs England game. Now he’s creating waves over at Newport County, and things look good for Will.
One of my heroes watching the 7s circuit over the years, with that huge beard and bald head – I was like DJ Forbes after 40 kebabs! Fresh from the Hong Kong 7s, a great chat with someone who’s genuinely won it all in their field, played with and against some of the greats, became an Olympian, and has transitioned over to the other side of sport.
A mainstay of the Ireland 7s team, recently getting to the Olympics, and doing well on both the World 7s Series, and the recent 7s RWC. In his spare time, his work with a camera and on Safari in Kenya is also unreal too.
I didn’t know what to expect from Mike, having only ever known him through what the press and social media said of him, with their own agenda. What I found was an articulate and clever player, who cared an awful lot for Quins and country, and who is absolutely misunderstood by the aforementioned
You can see how he’s shelved those SBS and Military experiences as things that define him, whilst pulling on the lessons learned, to help others in the corporate and sports world. He makes a lot of sense, and I can see how he would add real value to a company.
