RuggaMatrix International 025 – Hewy and the Fat Guy by the Pool

It’s our 25th show and there’s plenty to celebrate in this episode.

Joining us for the second time is London Irish back Peter Hewat who talks about the gripping Guinness Premiership Final against Leicester at Twickenham last weekend.

Hewat’s side went down by a heartbreaking scoreline of 10-9 in front of 80 000 people. He talks about the clash of styles with the Leicester Tigers and how Irish never considered restricting their expansive game. Hewat is well placed to comment on Leicester’s chances in Saturday’s Heinkenen Cup Final against Leinster at Murrayfield.

Bruce McLane is back on the show as the USA Super League nears its conclusion … and yes the title of the show comes from the colourful New Yorker. Les Kiss is also somewhere in North America but it took a while to find him. Ewen McKenzie was just where he was supposed to be as he prepares for the Top 14 semis.

The panel analyses the Super Rugby semifinals and revisits their pre-season predictions.

Our subject for in-depth analysis this week … the ELVs brought into the official laws of the game.

Did the IRB get it right? What about the breakdown? Again McKenzie and Kiss give you the best analysis on the game.
