    Easily the best intro song on a Scottish rugby podcast around.
    Provides solid analysis on bacon rolls and also talks about all things Scottish rugby. Great dudes!
  • I Miss Ron Elving
    Great Stuff!
    Fantastic, informative and funny, this podcast covers the things no other pods seems to care about - all things Scottish!

    Brightening My Week
    I have searched for rugby podcasts and was always disappointed until now. No one ever covers enough Scottish rugby for me (being a huge Glasgow fan in the US this is vital)! Keep it up, and I love the quizzes.

    You talk baws.... rugby baws
    Great stuff lads particularly when the majority of UK based podcasts tend to be dismissive of the Pro 12/14 and worst still the Scotland & the Scottish pro-teams barely get a mention. So this is where I get my Scottish rugby fix.... which is nigh on impossible when you live abroad. In the pods all too brief existence I have tuned in regularly from the USA, Saudi Arabia & Canada and wait with baited breath for each new upload! Awrabestnthat! Paul

    Yeah, but No, it's great!
    Its so great to hear a proper Scottish rugby podcast. Its fairly diffcult being a scottish rugby fan at the best of times, but the lads embrace the humour and banter of scottish rugby, with some actually decent insights! Well worth a listen for anyone who loves the game and the "Social" side of things too!

    Love it, Sort Of
    Love the pod, keeps me connected from afar, but Alan how many times can one man say Sort Of in a sentence?

    From New York with Love
    Definitely have a blast listening to the guys talking about Scottish rugby and how two teams hold up an entire country. Also, stop making for Matt about his love of Anime. As a fan myself of Japanese cartoons and comics, I was quite offended!

    Ever improving
    After some awful audio episodes (I stopped listening for 3 pods after one where two of the lads were dialled in) and a little too much edinburgh private school chat, this has become a weekly listen I look forward to. Great insight, excellent interviews and the right amount of 'rugby lad chat'. The quality of production and commentary are improving every week, keep up the good work.
  • From the heart of the scrum
    Scotland rugby from USA
    Love your podcast. I long for Scotland rugby news, and you provide it in bunches. Your pod is stronger than a David Soul scrum, greater than a Duncan Hodge whitewash of England, higher than a Chris Patterson drop goal, more exciting than a Stuart Hogg break, and more joyous than a Bill McClaren try call. Keep it up. We are listening.
