We introduce a new character to our colourful cast this week.

A regular contributor to Bruce reveals the very latest on the U.S.A coaching drama involving Australia’s Scott Johnson and his bold plan to save the United States Eagles.

Our special guest star is former Wallaby tighthead prop Ben Darwin. Ben joins Mark and Djuro from Tokyo for a lengthy discussion about the game in Japan. It’s an amazing insight into an often misunderstood region of the game. Above all it’s a fun show to start the year as Super 14 preparations reach their climax and Europe starts the long haul home.
