Kooks, Shaun and Thala come together to review round 3 of the Rugby Championship.
We start with deep analysis on the new addition to the Springboks – the song Sister Bokkina and we talk about other rugby songs in First Phase.
We then move to an underwhelming Springbok victory over Argentina 22-21. We discuss if there’s reason to panic, which Springboks stocks have risen and fallen, including how important Handré Pollard has become and whether he can integrate into the new attacking approach. We also discuss what poor Aimee Kitshoff has to do to see his husband at home again, as he goes to his 4th continent in 3 months to play rugby.
We then move to the Bledisloe Cup victory for the All Blacks at the MCG. We marvel at the form of Scott Barrett and the miracle job Jason Ryan has done.
The podcast then descends into chaos with rants about the afternoon kickoff time for Bledisloe II in Dunedin, slander for Eddie Jones, slander for Will Skelton, slander for Marika Koroibete, slander for tweets from rugby journos, slander for Munster, even Thala catches a bullet from Kooks in a matter involving spaghetti bolognese.
Like Sister Bokkina, the podcast starts well enough and then descends into chaos!
