RuggaMatrix International 067 – Danger Zone

Vive le France!

The Grand Slam 6 Nations champions are France and this week we look back at the 2010 tournament with our special guest from Italy, Craig Gower.

Craig joins us from France where his club Bayonne is facing tough match against Top 14 ladder leaders Castres this weekend.

We get a first hand account of the strengths of the different teams during this year’s championship and Craig gives Scotland a better than expected assessment over England.

The former Australian rugby league rep player talks about a some funny things too … things you’ll only ever see in the French competition.

Back to the 6 Nations and Les Kiss looks at France but also absorbs a barrage of questions from angry Irish supporters … but as usual he handles it with style.

Ewen McKenzie chimes in from South Africa where the Reds are preparing to play the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

We also name our RuggaMatrix 6 Nations Player of the Championship. You’ll have to listen to find out who it is!


This week we look in detail at rugby’s version of unarmed combat, defending your tryline from an attacking team inside your 5 metres.

It’s requires a completely different attitude, technique and strategy to keep a team from scoring that close to your line.

Our expert panel describe in detail what the defending and attacking teams have to do to be successful in this area of combat.
