Tue, 13 Dec 2022
For a final festive get together before the Christmas break, Hugh Woozencroft, Rachael Burford and Alex Goode are joined by Wales' two-time Grand Slam winner James Hook.

Together, they consider what a future England team under Steve Borthwick might look like, discuss which players are likely to thrive in his system and what would constitute success in 2023. James Hook gives insight into his old coach Warren Gatland, and what Wales need at both country and club level to turn their fortunes around. The panel spill the beans on the biggest liabilities at rugby Christmas parties and argue over the perfect festive film. All that, plus stolen leather jackets, milk-sloshing initiations and niche WhatsApp groups.
