As requested, I've started this thread for all the episodes this season. So keep a lookout for this thread where I'll put up the links to all the shows.

The best way of following the shows is through the iTunes Store. If you search for "Talking Rugby" through the iTunes Store search bar, you'll see our show page where you can subscribe and download the shows automatically.

Our humble aim is to provide you, the listener, with some insightful discussion and analysis of the game we all enjoy!

EPISODE 49

Below is the latest show (episode 49), where we follow episode 48 which reviewed last weekend's rugby. In this show, we preview this weekend's rugby: Pro12, AP, Top14 and Rugby Championship while we also talk about Geordan Murphy's book and the Lions.

Dave was unavailable so I hosted the show (beginning of a successful broadcasting career! ) and I was joined by Doc and Michael.

The shows just keep on coming! Given the last episode was only a review, the team felt compelled for another this week. So here is episode 49, which looks ahead to all the domestic action in the Northern Hemisphere while also previewing the upcoming games in the South Hemisphere's Rugby Championship.

With Dave taking a break, Alan hosts this week's show and is joined by Doc and Michael, our Ulster exile.

COMING UP ON THE SHOW:

RABODIRECT PRO12
1:00 - Munster host Benetton Treviso at Thomond Park, with a settled lineup for the home side along with a Treviso side much changed from last week.

Out of respect for the Spences' tragedy, there will be no show this week.

Listened to it at work earlier. It's pretty good. The only rugby podcast i was listening too was 'rugby on off the ball'. That one is usually just about 20 minutes long

This one seems to be more of what i was looking for. Keep it up and i'll keep downloading it

Love the show. Always good to listen to on a Friday afternoon when I'm sorting through admin stuff in work!

I hope <ahem> that Ulster and Connacht get a little bit of a mention this week!
