Like this show and Tindall's wife Zara.
Funny bit about Tom Shanklin refusing the offer to play for England which allowed Tindall in. Shanklin bemoaning what could've been in reference to Zara :lol:

Great podcast. Loved the story about the 2003 world cup and the prank on Austin Healy.

Listened to their latest one on the way in with Paul Doran-Jones which had some real laugh out loud moments.

There was too much show-jumping discussion in this episode.

Yes this. House of Horseridery more than House of Rugby

Nah. People are interested in Zara and how she got with Tindall. It was a predictable weekend anyway.

It was probably the bets one yet. So funny, possibly the funniest episode so far :lol:

BUT Paul Dorian-Jones story, the serious bit, about his career's highs and lows and fighting for access to his daughter while his career was falling apart was actually the best part. That was really interesting in the life of a player behind the Rugby. Incredible stuff any rugby fan should listen to.

New season, hasn't missed a beat, great little episode to start with season 2, typical peak Haskell but episode 2 is AMAZING with Jerry Flannery, he has some great stories with Arsenal, the Munster fight club and other stuff. I'd be every happy if he returns.

Fla is now a regular on the Irish one. He'll probably show up on the English one from time to time.

Healy? You sure it wasn't the story when Ralph was pinning Zara in a Melbourne hotel and his roommate, a drunken McCaw, came home from the boozer and jumped all over the bed asking how grandma was?

No. Healy was not being in the squad, called over when there was an injury scare and pranked.

House is rugby is good but it’s essentially The Hask show. Most pro rugby players are dull as ditch water so you need somebody like the hask to liven it up. The guy is a complete workaholic too.

Interview with Flannery was decent, couldn't warm to Vickerman at all though. Sure he's a nice guy but I just found him irritating here.

Yeah, he was being a bit weird.

I think Flannery's sheer alpha aura intimidated him.

It says a lot when I couldn't think of one contribution to the show that was worthwhile from Vickerman. All I got is he loves brown nosing Danny Care for some reason.

Can we add that while he is almost never praised for his part, Alex Payne is an excellent host. The sort who knows the sport inside out and uses his knowledge to get the most out of his guests and co-hosts. Like Joe Rogan he knows the art of getting everyone else to do the talking and letting them/encouraging them to talk. It's about them, not him and he nicely seems just as interested as the listener which is why he gets so much out of them.

Outside of the House of Rugby stuff, Joe is close to shitehouse..

agreed. He seems to have pretty encyclopaedic knowledge of the game, also seems like a good bloke

Agree whole-heartedly.

I'd also add I think he's remarkably phlegmatic in the face of Hask's ongoing, often over-done and sometimes excessively barbed jibes about being posh which I've always felt are somewhat misplaced given Hask's not exactly some salt-of-the-earth, working class hero

The only time Alex has seemed a bit flustered is the first Joe Marler episode where he clearly wasn't quite getting a handle on how to deal with Joe (which must be difficult tbf!).

Hask's jabs about Payne being a poshboy are almost funnier because he's a bit of a poshboy himself, IMO. I think he has enough self awareness to know it.

The first episode with Marler was funny. Payne just couldn't get to grips with the pacing and struggled. Added to the entertainment value of it, for me.

Yeah, tongue very much in cheek. Hask went to Wellington College FFS (don't think he was on a rugby scholarship). It doesn't get too much posher than that.

The Marler interview was a tough gig for anyone in that role as Joe wasn't giving him a lot to work with.
