2020 has been a difficult year for most and the sport of rugby union has been no exception.

Joining Brian to look back on the year is former England and London Irish winger Topsy Ojo.

Despite difficult circumstances off the pitch, England’s men and women both enjoyed huge success on it. Eddie Jones led his side to Six Nations glory and also lifted the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup, we reflect on how the team performed and look ahead to their chances in the upcoming Six Nations.

As for the Women’s side, they went a full year undefeated and end 2020 as the number one ranked side in the World. Head coach Simon Middleton will now turn his full attention to the World Cup in New Zealand and he joins the show to discuss how he plans on going all the way next Summer.

The British and Irish Lions return in 2021, but how is the tour going to look? Hosts South Africa are without a game of competitive rugby since lifting the World Cup in 2019, and with the Covid-19 vaccine yet to be rolled out, the prospect of fans in stadiums for the tour is a very strong possibility. We speak to Sports Editor of the Daily Maverick, Craig Ray about the Springboks preparations for the tour and the newly announced ‘Rainbow Cup’ which will see South Africa’s Super Rugby franchises square off with the teams in the Pro 14.

Plus we discuss the latest from the Gallagher Premiership, what the delay in the start of the Championship could mean for Saracens England stars and we look at some of the amazing work done by volunteers at grassroots level in what’s been a turbulent year on and off the pitch.
