The Rugby Blog Podcast 2010/11: Episode 12

While the fans celebrate a great England performance against Australia, it’s clear that the England team are far from believing that their work is done. Nick Heath caught up with Chris Ashton, Matt Banahan, John Wells and Martin Johnson as they reflect and prepare for the third Investec International against Samoa.

Toby Flood was keen to remain calm and keep things in perspective as you can see in this video of Nick’s interview with him for the RFU.

  1. Nick you’ve probably spotted it but there’s a great 5 sec clip on Rugby Club of you getting your pic taken with Ashton!

  2. I think I’m correct in saying that in New Zealand, Oz and South Africa there is a progression though club, province to the national side. There used to be in the UK. The North and North-West regional sides marked up victories against all the Southern Hemisphere sides., I know – I watched ’em. Not any more. It’s straight from Premier club side to national side. Let’s hope Ireland don’t go the same way. How refreshing too, to see Scotland play at Pittodrie, Supporters in the provinces don’t all like traipsing off to Twickers – even if they can get a ticket amongst the hospitality alickadoos!
