RuggaMatrix International 004 – On Frozen Ground

While the southern hemisphere Super 14 teams finalise their preparations in energy sapping heat their northern cousins are battling through their respective competitions in bitter cold.

This week RuggaMatrix deals with the latest developments in European competitions.

Les Kiss covers England and Ireland while Ewen McKenzie informs us about some interesting issues in France. Justin Marshall’s bizarre suspension by Montpellier is just one of several intriguing stories coming out of France.

RuggaMatrix welcomes award winning journalist Simnikiwe Xabanisa from the Sunday Times in South Africa. Sim will join us every few weeks to update us on developments in the Republic.

He’s a great character and switched on to all things SA Rugby. Check out Sim’s work at the Sunday Times.

Our special guest star this week is London Irish attacking machine Peter Hewat. The former NSW outside back has been a critical element during London Irish’s rise to the top of the Guinness Premiership.

Pete talks candidly about his growth in London admitting that he took time to find form in the Premiership and other competitions. Now he’s one of the form players in Europe and he opens up to RuggaMatrix for the full story.

It’s another cracking show this week brought to you by Inside Rugby – the definitive rugby magazine.
