Synopsis: A sombre note to start the show as we recall the tragic news at the Ariana Grande concert. #PrayforManchester
We get into the topic of the show regarding the difficulties visiting teams have when they come to play in Toronto. We discus the jet lag problems and visa issues for convicts.
This leads us into an interview Chris did with Wolfpack coach Paul Rowley where he responds to some of the claims of unfairness in his usual witty way which does include, warm cup of tea and a cuddly toy.
We then read comments from a Sportinglife article where Barrow Chairman Michael Sunderland calls out (and that’s an understatement) the RL for not assisting the teams coming over.
The comments that we heard so far have come from before the actual game, so the next segment takes place at the post game conference and we hear from coach Rowley again as well as CEO Eric Perez. Perez also comments that it would be nice that the RL would help a little more.
And to make sure we give everyone a fair shake (might not always happen in the future) Chris reads some quotes from RL representatives who deny, deny deny. As they say, three sides to every story.
We touch on the enthusiasm we have heard so far from a few @CoventryBearsRL supporters and from the team itself and we hope they all have a blast while in town.
Chris then promises to ask @TheRLBlogger for help for a past Barrow Raider question. We then thank Andy @swampo for correcting Dario about last week’s show.
(Chris is a lot more thankful… Dario meh, not so much)
Our final segment the “I know more about rugby than you!” begins. Chris starts off with a question about scoring and Dario counters with his question on the different nationalities on the Wolfpack team. Beers were drank, tears were shared, lots was learned and Chris and I still fail to get a point in the game.
